Eco-Visionaries surveys contemporary positions in art and architecture addressing environmental problems beyond mainstream notions of sustainability.  

This comprehensive volume is a companion to the collaborative 2018 exhibition staged by four participating European museums (Fundação EDP/MAAT, Lisbon, Portugal; Bildmuseet, Umeå, Sweden; HeK, Basel, Switzerland; and LABoral, Gijón, Spain). Each show maintains a different focus and curatorial approach, and for each, artists investigate more sustainable approaches toward humankind's place on earth, through video and sound works, paintings and installations. 

While the series of exhibitions presents the works of artists and architects who offer critical reflections on pressing contemporary issues, the book unites research, essays and the artworks. Besides the historical antecedents of current ecological thinking in art and design, this catalog also promotes alternative visions for future uses of energy, resources and the environment. 

Texts by: Amale Andraos, T. J. Demos, Matthew Fuller, Sabine Himmelsbach, Sofia Johansson, Karin Ohlenschläger, Mariana Pestana, Yvonne Volkart, Linda Weintraub
