The autumn issue of the Estonian Art magazine focuses on art in the Anthropocene. Writers and artists discuss different subjects such as biomass, the future of textiles, the Anthropocene in Estonian visual culture, eco-activism in the Baltics, the possibility of alternative narratives for the future and community gardens as part of an artistic practice. Artists Laura Põld and Lou Sheppard have created a special visual essay The Exquisite Corpse for this issue, which deals with the abandoned and toxic “zombie mines”.
