Abstract

The present backlash in ecological politics comes from an almost total disconnect between the size and extension in space and time of the issues and the institution of politics in charge of representing them to the eyes of those in charge of making decisions. There is thus a great interest in devising instruments able to represent and make accessible to the senses the issues at hand. The great novelty of such an extension of our sensibility is that they should come from arts as well as from science thus extending the definition of aesthetics. The lecture will review some of the instruments especially those around the mapping of controversies.

Introduction by Carlo Carraro, FEEM and Ca'Foscari University, Venice.
