New in Store: Volume Magazine

Brand new in the Next Nature store: Volume Magazine #18, After Zero and #35, Everything Under Control.

After Zero explores the ethical and political ramifications of our society-wide acceptance of "sustainability" – whatever that is – and ways we can move beyond a mere emphasis on "zero emissions". Everything Under Control tackles the human side of our biosynthetic future, where hacked lyre birds repeat radio broadcasts and bioluminescent trees light up cities.

These two issues feature essays from Slavoj Zizek, Rachel Armstrong, Daisy Ginsberg and our very own Koert van Mensvoort. A perfect addition to your library of bio-hacker philosophy and art. Get your hands on a copy here and here.

What is your view on the coronavirus?


Siri Beerends: I really embrace the idea that viruses can teach us a lesson in modesty. It is necessary that our position as the dominant species on the planet is being challenged. I also agree that it is a mistake to think that we are becoming Gods. But unfortunately, this is actually what is happening now. Corona doesn’t teach us to be modest, it teaches us how we can -as quickly as possible- go back to business as usual: saving our capitalistic economy.
