Ecology After Nature

Part Five | Extraction by Different Means

In Part Five of the series Ecology After Nature: Industries, Communities, and Environmental MemoryMisho Antadze’s The Harvest (2019) and Ivar Veermäe’s The Flood (2018-2019) examine the process of cryptocurrency mining and the ecological implications of this new mode of energy consumption, where digital ways of extraction are shown to be as environmentally harmful and socially exploitative as the mining and excavation of natural resources.

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 Five | Extraction by Different Means will screen for two weeks from Sunday, Sunday, October 11 through Saturday, October 24, 2020. Subsequent parts will follow bi-weekly, with new films screened every other Sunday.
