Title: Unsettling the Horizon: How De-alienation Can Better our Relationality and Engagement with the Living World

Speaker: Jill Price

Description: Unsettling the Horizon is an interactive lecture that begins by outlining how the horizon, as found within early European and North American landscape paintings, was a formalistic device used as propaganda to entice early European settlement and imperial, industrial expansion.  Specifically investigating her own role as an artist in relation to Goal 12: Responsible Consumption and Production, as outlined within the United Nation's 17 Sustainable Development Goals, Price draws on Karl Marx's concept of alienation and Jane Bennet's visceral descriptions of waste as lively to investigate how cultural producers and programmers can help to unmake images and technologies that reify the colonial gaze and normalize industrial aesthetics.
