Feral Atlas Collective unites more than a hundred scientists, humanists and artists to examine the un-designed effects of human infrastructures. Creating a transdisciplinary view of Anthropocene processes, the collective shows how ordinary, taken-for-granted infrastructures such as plantations, shipping routes, factories, dams, power stations and drilling rigs produce feral effects. For Istanbul, a small sample of their major work-in-process is curated by visual anthropologists Jennifer Deger and Victoria Baskin Coffey, together with architect Feifei Zhou and renowned anthropologist Anna Tsing.
Feral Atlas brings together scientists, humanists and artists to offer field-based observations from the More-than-Human Anthropocene. Developed in association with AURA (Aarhus University Research on the Anthropocene) and James Cook University, Australia, the project is curated for exhibition by visual anthropologists, Jennifer Deger (b. 1962, Sydney Australia) and Victoria Baskin Coffey (b. 1985, Newcastle, Australia), together with architect, Feifei Zhou (b. 1992, Jiangsu, China) and anthropologist, Anna Tsing (b. 1952, San Francisco, USA), author of the The Mushroom at the End of the World: On the Possibility of Life in Capitalist Ruins (2017).
