Future Natures comics – Exhibition at IDS

Free exhibition in the reception space at IDS.

This exhibition at the Institute of Development Studies presents a series of comics investigating ideas around enclosures and commoning.

How did the world get into this mess? What are the possibilities of commoning? How can we see human relationships with nature(s) differently? The artwork explores the impacts of enclosures and resource grabs, and the multiple crises produced by values that create artificial divisions between humans and the rest of nature.

The exhibition features comics co-created by Tim Zocco and Amber Huff.

The comics can be viewed in the reception space at IDS, Library Road, Brighton BN1 9RE, UK until mid-September 2024. The space is open between 9am and 5pm on weekdays and entry is free.

IDS is on the Falmer campus of the University of Sussex. Visit the IDS website for info about how to get there and accessibility.
