"She's on the horizon...I go two steps, she moves two steps away. I walk ten steps and the horizon runs ten steps ahead. No matter how much I walk, I'll never reach her. What good is utopia? That's what: it's good for walking." - Eduardo Galeano in Walking Words
The Ecotopian Library is a public toolkit that stems from the belief that art and ecotopian thought can be part of cultivating systemic social change. It combines disciplines of forestry, botany, art, literature, philosophy, and geology. People have contributed stories, objects, digital files, experiences, or books to build a toolkit for more regenerative futures within climate change. Since it is place-based and it travels, it combines local tool sets as it moves. This resource should expand. Please email to contribute!
Ecotopian Library was supported by the Colorado University Art Museum, through a fellowship and exhibition that functioned as a library called Last Library: Reading Rooms, Bridges, and Tools for integrating Ecological Ethics into Practice, in early 2020. CU Boulder's Norlin Library also has a selection from the Ecotopian Library available for checkout. Tool sets and books from the Ecotopian Library are available for checkout at Basillica Hudson, NY with Toolshed in 2021.
The Ecotopian Library will expand with the Seoul Art Center for [netshow] in the fall of 2021 with online recordings, and highlight tools surrounding the Museum London, Ontario with the Gardenship exhibition in the winter of 2021.
