Kateryna Botanova, Quinn LatimerAmazonia: Anthology as Cosmology
A collection of contributions by artists, writers, theorists, shamans, poets and activists about the Amazon, the multiple languages (oral as well as visual), thoughts, traditions and myths of its peoples and their past and present forms of resistance.
Amazonia: Anthology as Cosmology addresses themes of decolonial feminisms and indigenous temporalities, externalized memory and erasure, sacred plants and pandemic corporate and state extractivism and systemic violence, the activist possibilities of mythological imagination, and the shared visual matrices of the Amazonian universe. The book also examines the Western imagination of the Amazon, between colonial roots, racial capitalism and the corporate, technological and paternalistic present.
