abstract

This article explores the role of performance in Environmental Humanities by discussing Joan Jonas’s staging of Moving Off The Land II at Ocean Space in Venice as a case study. More specifically, the article shows that Moving Off The Land II and Ocean Space have created a space in which to practice environmental art illustrating how co-habiting ecosystems that we regularly fail to acknowledge should form part of how we construct our own presence.
