Dump Philosophy

Michael Marder with Sofia Lemos

According to Michael Marder, the Earth, along with everything that lives and thinks on it, is at an advanced stage of being converted into a dump for industrial output and its by-products feeding consumerism and its excesses. In this conversation, Marder will survey the devastation that is the reality of the twenty-first century, providing a frightening and yet intellectually spellbinding glimpse of the future.
