Abstract: Featuring original artworks and writings of 34 prominent artists and researchers, ‘Eco Noir: A Companion for Precarious Times’ is a textual and visual collaborative exploration of interspecies relations in time of crisis. In light of the escalating climate emergency we are facing, with its immanent future extinctions, pandemic waves and their vast influence, ‘Eco Noir’ suggests new readings into the fragile and complex ways in which we inhabit and share our environment with other species. This expanded reader offers engaging meeting points formed by the tension and correlation between texts and visual artworks. It acts as a cartography for the cultural and artistic strategies we can suggest for emancipating our perception from viewing other species merely as subjects for politics of consumption or as objects of fascination. ‘Eco Noir’ shows how relations with other species correspond with ancient tales and rumours while offering new ways in which humans and animals can unite to create a contemporary common story.
