UP HERE: THE NORTH AT THE CENTER OF THE WORLD. Ed. by Julie Decker and Kirsten J. Anderson. Anchorage Museum, 2016. Distributed by University of Washington Press, Seattle. 200 pp. with 108 col. ills. 25 x 23 cm. ISBN 9780295999081 In English.
Pubilsher's description: The North is a complex place that is beautiful, moody, and anything but untouched. The Arctic, part of the international North that is pivotal to the world because of climate change, is no longer a frontier of the past. The same interest in the North that preoccupied artists and explorers of the Romantic era has returned greater than ever, but rather than merely depicting its grandeur, today's artists, scientists, and explorers question the future of the landscape. Up Here connects art, science, and environment at a time when unprecedented climate change requires unprecedented innovation. The contributors explore the ideas of "wilderness" and "remoteness," the lessons to be learned from cold places and indigenous knowledge, and how the Arctic is a signal for global change.
