The Ethics of Earth Art

In May, the University of Minnesota Press released The Ethics of Earth Art, by Amanda Boetzkes (Amazon). Updated August 2010: The University of Minnesota Press blog has an interview with the author.

In The Ethics of Earth Art, Amanda Boetzkes analyzes the development of the earth art movement, arguing that such diverse artists as Robert Smithson, Ana Mendieta, James Turrell, Jackie Brookner, Olafur Eliasson, Basia Irland, and Ichi Ikeda are connected through their elucidation of the earth as a domain of ethical concern. — UMN Press
