Question 4: ‘The Changing World’ (Mirzoeff, Chapter 6. Pages 211-252)
This topic explores the negative effects/consequences of human interference with the natural environment and the living things that inhabit it; an interference which is fuelled by mankind’s desire to ‘conquer’, tame, or control nature. The question asks me to investigate and examine these effects/consequences, and the ways that artists are bringing these to the attention of the general public in order to change the way we behave towards our environment and all that occupies it.
