New Extractivism, the book

Wednesday 18th January, 2023 - Bruce Sterling

At this moment in the 21st century, we are witnessing a new form of extractivism well underway: one that reaches into the furthest corners of the biosphere and the deepest layers of man’s cognitive and affective being.

– Vladan Joler

New Extractivism was the theme of the twelfth edition of Tactics&Practice, a discursive, educational and exhibition programme focusing on the research, investigations and artistic works of Joana Moll, Vladan Joler, and Ben Grosser that was realised by Aksioma | Institute for Contemporary Art in Ljubljana in early 2022. This booklet collects the interviews conducted on that occasion by writer and publicist Mojca Kumerdej for Sobotna priloga, the weekly supplement of the Slovenian daily Delo.
