De Dépendance and IFFR invite philosopher Timothy Morton for a talk on his latest book Being Ecological. Morton is a cross-disciplinarian who has collaborated with everyone from Björk to Olafur Eliasson and he co-wrote and appears in Living in the Future's Past, the 2018 film about global warming with Jeff Bridges.
Morton has been called "the philosopher prophet of the Anthropocene". He draws on Kant and Heidegger, popular culture and the history of cinema, to help us understand living in an age of mass extinction caused by global warming. Without spilling ecological facts, Morton confronts the information overload of the digital era, explores a variety of current styles of being ecological and offers an invigorated approach to creating a livable future.
