If exploitation of fossil fuels was essential to development during the Industrial Revolution, the creation of cultural imaginaries establishing a productivist worldview has been no less important in “legitimating” ecocidal practices and the colonial extractivist project. In this encounter, Jaime Vindel and Cesar Rendueles will examine imaginaries of energy and the eco-social crisis in an attempt to advance some hypotheses serving to enable the reconstruction of aesthetics in light of the contributions of political ecology, specifically its eco-Marxist dimension, in a conversation for situating the intersections and tensions generated between energy’s physical dimension and imaginary dimension, both crucial to structuring a collective vision of the future.

Activity carried out in collaboration with the Open City Thinking Biennale.
