Conservation: Victims And Politics 11/15

Series:
Date: Friday 28 February 1997
Time: 18:00
Venue:
Running time: 65 mins

'Conservation' has established itself as the unexamined virtue of our age. It serves as a new norm with which to express a reinvented relation to nature, and its scope extends from the plea to 'save' the planet to the pressure to control the body and its appetites. It also involves a claim that the past and its objects should be preserved, which would manacle us to existence through an old kind of tenure - as tenants who hand on to the future a world of minimized wear and tear. This lecture series deals with these claims and demands, treating them as symptoms of, rather than solutions to real problems.
