The first major anthology to focus on relationships between science fiction and contemporary art, with topics ranging from accelerating technological change to global urbanization. Over the past two decades, artists and writers have increasingly used science fiction as a lens through which to search for fragments of truth emerging from the past or the future. The proliferation of science fiction in contemporary art practice and discourse reflects an increased understanding of how this narrative field continues to grow in relevance. This book is the first major anthology to focus on relationships between science fiction and contemporary art, and offers an essential read for all those exploring this vital genre. Organizing its contributions according to four distinct approaches?"estrangement,” “futures,” “posthumanism,” and “ecologies”?this unique collection gathers key examples of the influence of science fiction in recent cultural development. It considers topics that include the integration and acceleration of technological change, global urbanization and concepts of futurity, the boundaries of social structures and nonhuman life, and the threatening evidence of climate change. Writers include Peio Aguirre, Margaret Atwood, J. G. Ballard, Tiffany E. Barber, Jean Baudrillard, Franco Bifo Beradi, Rosie Braidotti, Rachel Carson, Jeffrey Deitch, Donna Haraway, Cathy Lane, Amna Malik, Tom McCarthy, Alondra Nelson, Gwyneth Shanks, Jan Tumlir, Xin Wang, Gilda Williams
