Join artist Anne Duk Hee Jordan and curator Stefanie Hessler for a conversation and film screening of Jordan’s video Ziggy and the Starfish to celebrate the book launch of Sex Ecologies. The publication is the result of a collaborative project between Kunsthall Trondheim and The Seed Box, co-published with The MIT Press.

Accompanying an eponymous exhibition and public programs, and with contributions by 36 artists and scholars, the book explores the power of the erotic in human and more-than-human worlds. It presents newly commissioned texts and artworks alongside selected visionary essays exploring the intersections of queer theory and ecology. Spanning diverse geographies and disciplines including art, environmental humanities, gender studies, science and technology studies, and Indigenous studies, the contributors deconstruct Eurocentric erotophobia and heterosexist and speciesist notions of nature, proposing nothing short of a reconceptualization of human relationships with nature. Sex Ecologies invokes ecological erotics for greater social and environmental justice.
