Performing new ecologies with Baz Kershaw (2015)

What if all organisms fundamentally are performed by Earth’s ecologies?  What fresh horizons would humans have to imagine for performing ecologically more responsively? Professor, Researcher and artist Baz Kershaw explores these questions in this talk.

In his own words:
Humankind is heading for an environmental crisis that could make the extinction of the dinosaurs look like child’s play. Most people on Earth are becoming aware of this prospect, thanks to technology and climate change scientists. But still the vast majority seem to behave as if it is a chimera. Globally this implicit denial may now be naturally systemic, so I call such behaviour ‘performance compulsion’.
