Naturally Hypernatural I: Concepts of Nature


Edited By Suzanne Anker and Sabine Flach

Nature, a topic central to art history, is concurrently a dominant concept in contemporary art, art theory and its related disciplines such as cultural theory, philosophy, aesthetic theory and environmental studies. The project Naturally Hypernatural questions lines of tradition and predetermined categories that coexist with the topic of nature. Currently, nature in art surpasses the simple depiction of art as a material or object. To clarify and analyze the interrelations between nature and art is the aim of the project Naturally Hypernatural. Concepts of Nature – the first volume of this project – argues that contemporary art is predominantly concerned with concepts of nature regarding the depth of their implications in order to reveal and analyze their internal structure.

Art / Knowledge / Theory

Edited by Suzanne Anker and Sabine Flach

Art / Knowledge / Theory is a book series that explores artistic modes of expression as forms of knowledge production. It focuses on transdisciplinary, epistemological and methodological approaches to contemporary art. Linking artistic and scienti¢ c practices, tools, techniques and theories, the volumes investigate the cultures of aesthetics and science studies as they relate to works of art.

Art / Knowledge / Theory analyzes the role of art in contemporary culture by probing the philosophical, historical and social parameters by which images are accessed and assessed.

As an amplification – as well as intervention or even a correction – to historical research, this series questions the state of the art and knowledge within a culture, characterized by technology and science.
