In autumn 2019, the Royal Academy of Arts is organising 'Eco-Visionaries: Confronting a Planet in a State of Emergency', an exhibition that will examine how contemporary practices of art and architecture are responding to current global ecological changes. 'Eco-Visionaries' brings together architects and artists who are proposing inventive and critical ways to address some of the most pressing issues of our times, from climate change to resource depletion and species extinction. This publication features conversations with a number of the participants in the exhibition - including Alexandra Daisy Ginsberg, Amale Andraos, Dan Wood, Rimini Protokoll, Nerea Calvillo and Carolina Caycedo - along with photographs of their groundbreaking alternative visions for the future.The title also includes a foreword by the environmentalist Jane Goodall and a conversation with the ecological philosopher Timothy Morton. Published to accompany an exhibition at the Royal Academy of Arts between 24 November 2019 to 23 February 2020.
