This panel concentrates on the way artists working with lens-based media respond to the climate crisis, making visible the altered landscapes of today. Emphasis is placed on artistic practices of a post-photographic approach that situate us in a dystopian present of environmental collapse at the same time that they project visions of a radically rethought future. It is investigated whether such approaches to the photographic medium unsettle human-centred views of the world, abolishing distinctions (between nature and culture, living and non-living beings, between genders, ethnicities and social classes) whilst making visible the asymmetric way that the planet’s destruction is experienced. The question of the role of representation comes centre stage as is the power of the (photographic) image to cultivate environmental consciousness, motivate climate action and encourage alternative, hopeful visions for the future
