Alice Smits’ Lecture for the Koninklijk Academie van Beeldende Kunsten Master Program

On 6 December 2018, Alice Smits delivers a lecture titled Land Art in/and the Anthropocene for the Studium Generale program of the Koninklijke Academie van Beeldende Kunsten. The lecture discusses the challenging task of refigure our relationship with nature, especially the land that accommodates and supports us, in time of the ucrrent ecological crisis.
The website describes the lecture by saying, “Rethinking nature-culture relations does not only define nature in different ways but also repositions the human in a complete different way, pointing to new ways of knowing and being in the world. In this lecture she will explore through various artistic practices in which new relations between human and nature are being shaped and imagined.”
