| De-Financialise the Environment

Offsetted traces the emergence of the valuation of nature. The book by the artist duo Cooking Sections unpacks forms of dispossession that are becoming more common through the protection—not only destruction—of natural environments. Through a series of artistic and architectural interventions, Offsetted ties into current struggles for climate justice worldwide, contesting neoliberalism as a savior of its own ecological contradictions. It challenges conservation models based on “natural capital,” while proposing new spatial tactics to de-financialize the environment. Besides a photographic documentary and the works by Cooking Sections, the book assembles numerous contributions by interdisciplinary artists and scientists.

COOKING SECTIONS was established in London in 2013 by Daniel Fernández Pascual and Alon Schwabe. Their practice explores the overlapping boundaries between art, architecture, ecology and geopolitics. They are currently nominated for the 2021 Turner Prize.
