About the Author

Jeffrey Kastner is a New York-based writer and critic, and senior editor of Cabinet. Formerly senior editor of ARTnews, he has written extensively on contemporary art in numerous catalogues and journals. His books include Land and Environmental Art (1998).


"While exploring how artists and theorists mediate between the spheres of nature and culture, [Nature] also raises productive questions about how 'otherness' is defined between and within natural categories." - Wendy Vogel, The Brooklyn Rail "This is a really outstanding collection of texts around the idea of nature as it has been theorized by and for artists over the last hundred years. There is almost no important moment in the history that is not included, and the selections are precisely chosen and brief without being fragmentary. It's appropriate, too, that theorists are mixed with practitioners: Giorgio Agamben, Thomas Nagel, Michel Serres; Eduardo Kac, Robert Smithson, Mierle Laderman Ukeles ... In this book they are all at work together on Western culture's most under-coded and over-coded concept. This is a rare anthology, both necessary and sufficient, both clear and infuriatingly provocative." - James Elkins, E.C. Chadbourne Chair in the Department of Art History, Theory and Criticism, School of the Art Institute of Chicago
