Inspired by artist Otobong Nkanga’s suggestion that "caring is a form of resistance," this richly illustrated book highlights the ways in which artists are helping to reframe and deepen our psychological and spiritual responses to the climate crisis, hoping to inspire joy, empathy and a reenchantment with the world. The artists featured—including Andrea Bowers, Imani Jacqueline Brown, Agnes Denes, Otobong Nkanaga and Hito Steyerl—explore ecologies, ecosystems and climate-vulnerable communities across the globe. Newly commissioned essays by Rachel Thomas, Rebecca Solnit, and Maja Fowkes and Reuben Fowkes investigate the notion of radical care and the history of climate-concerned art, while a tapestry of influential texts—old and new—weaves together the voices of the featured artists with other practitioners from the worlds of literature, climate activism and philosophy.
