Ecology After Nature

Part Three | Decolonizing the Landscape

How does one read landscapes across cultural boundaries and beyond colonial discourses of visibility? In Part Three of the series Ecology After Nature: Industries, Communities, and Environmental MemoryDavid Kelley and Patty Chang’s Flotsam Jetsam (2007), Susana de Sousa Dias’ Fordlandia Malaise (2019), Su Yu Hsin’s water sleep II Akaike river under Xizang Road (2019), and Nguyễn Trinh Thi’s Landscape Series #1 (2012) investigate various forms of dominant representations of landscapes and their invisible pasts. They invite us to reconsider the culturally specific dichotomies between the visible and the invisible, and ponder landscapes' relationship to identity and colonial power.

Ecology After Nature: Industries, Communities, and Environmental Memory is an online series of film programs and discussions on e-flux Video & Film, programmed by Lukas Brasiskis.

The films in Part Three | Decolonizing the Landscape: From Invisible to Visible will screen for two weeks from Sunday, September 13 through Saturday, September 26, 2020. Subsequent parts will follow bi-weekly, with new films screened every other Sunday.
