Katerina Genidogan

is a doctoral candidate within the Research Training Group “Cultures of Critique” at Leuphana University Lüneburg. Her research lies at the intersection of postcolonial, black, environmental and critical development studies, and focuses on the relationship between the reconceptualization of racial difference since the mid nineteenth century, the environment, and modes of governance. Fieldwork in Ghana and Nigeria has been part of her research process. She has completed a BA in Business Administration with a major in Financial Management at Athens University of Economics & Business, a Graduate Diploma in Contemporary Art History and a MRes in Curatorial/Knowledge within the Visual Cultures Department at Goldsmiths University of London. She has taught the modules “Chronobiopolitics” and “Raciality, Ecology & Blackness” at Leuphana University. Recent publications include “Race Re(con)figurations through Speculative and Environmental Futurity,” View. Theories and Practices of Visual Culture (2021), and “Slow Cinema as an Ethico-Aesthetic Paradigm,” Counterfield Publication (2020).
Mathias Denecke (ed.), Holger Kuhn (ed.), ...: Liquidity, Flows, Circulation

It has become a truism that capital circulates, that data, populations and materials flow, that money offers liquidity. Placed at the intersection of art, media and cultural studies as well as economic theory, the volume investigates the Cultural Logic of Environmentalization. As flows, circulations and liquidity resurface in all aspects of recent culture and contemporary art, this volume investigates the hypothesis of a genuine cultural logic of environmentalization through these three concepts.
It thus brings together two areas of research which have been largely separate. On the one hand, the volume takes up discussions about ecologies with and without nature and environmentalization as a contemporary form of power and capital. On the other hand, the volume takes its cue from Fredric Jameson’s notion that each stage of capitalism is accompanied by a genuine cultural logic. The volume introduces this current of materialist thinking into the ongoing discussions of ecologies and environmentalization. By analyzing contemporary art, architecture, theater, films, and literature, the 15 contributions by scholars and artists explore different fields where liquid forms, semantics of flow, or processes of circulation emerge as a contemporary cultural logic.
