Ecocritical art history poses challenge to anthropocentric, androcentric and exploitative paradigms that reduce the alterity of nature. In particular, the technique of linear perspective, so crucial for the European tradition, comes under scrutiny. This international workshop gathers participants active in the emerging field of research in art practices, art history and environmental studies, working in different cultural contexts and across several historical periods. What forms of (re)presentations of physical spaces, environments and ecologies will be relevant for an ecocritical analysis? How do these forms of the artistic (re)presentation relate to epistemology and ontology of ‘nature’ today?
