The current ecological crisis is built upon the theft and destruction of past, present, and future generations. Resistance to capitalist extraction can only be intergenerational, and it must inform the way we conceive of architecture, environment, and decoloniality. In the book, leading scholars think through such resistance via examples that include Hannah Arendt’s work on Algerian Jews, intergenerational violence and archaeological evidence in Palestine, music and displacement in the shadow of the Aswan Dam, and more.

Propositions is the second volume in the editorial program of the 2019 Sharjah Architecture Triennial. 

With new essays by Nadia Abu El Haj, Ariella Aïsha Azoulay, Houria Bouteldja, Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak, Denise Ferreira da Silva, Alia Mossallam, Moad Musbahi, Jasbir K. Puar, Françoise Vergès.

National borders are always produced through cartographic and historical narratives – but global warming is now challenging established ideas of territory. Italian Limes was a project by Studio Folder to survey in real time Italy’s alpine boundaries, which are moving as a result of glacial reduction. The book builds on the project by compiling primary documents and commissioned essays.

With a foreword by Bruno Latour and contributions by Stuart Elden, Mia Fuller, Francesca Hughes, and Wu Ming 1.
