Navigating the Planetary, a guide to navigating the planetary art world—its past, present and potentials
This volume is a guidebook for readers looking for entry points into planetary approaches to contemporary art. It is for researchers already in the field, but also for those who don’t know where to begin.

Through essays, case studies, and interviews situated in the past, present, and looking to the future, this book explores people, institutions, and thoughts that are shifting or dissolving East/West and Global North/South binaries. This book also asks: why navigate the planetary at all—and is the desire to do so part of a political agenda? Do global or planetary networks offer solutions to cultural problems, and how are these networks best established and maintained? And how can or should education support a planetary or global consciousness or approach to art? “Navigating the Planetary” attempts to answer these questions, as well as offer a sense of possibility.

Edited by Hildegund Amanshauser and Kimberly Bradley for the Salzburg International Summer Academy of Fine Arts.
