Offsetted traces the emergence of the valuation of nature. The book by the artist duo Cooking Sections unpacks forms of dispossession that are becoming more common through the protection – not only destruction – of natural environments. Through a series of artistic and architectural interventions, Offsetted ties into current struggles for climate justice worldwide, contesting neoliberalism as a saviour of its own ecological contradictions. It challenges conservation models based on ‘natural capital,’ while proposing new spatial tactics to de-financialise the environment. Besides a photographic documentary and the works by Cooking Sections, the book assembles numerous contributions by interdisciplinary artists and scientists. show more
