Magazine UOVO/14 'Ecology, Luxury & Degradation', Summer 2007
Guest Editors: UOVO/14 'Ecology, Luxury & Degradation', Summer 2007

UOVO magazine Issue #14 (green) presented interviews, essays, projects and two CDs around art practices that resist the spectacularisation or romanticisation of ecological issues or the natural world. Instead their practices explore the operational function and processes of ecosystems themselves, a capacity to comprehend connections and transgress disciplines and boundaries while addressing the uniformly conflicted future of the planet.

Issue launched during Art Basel's Art Lobby on the 17 June 2007.
