The publication 'LAND, ART: A Cultural Ecology Handbook', was commissioned by RSA Arts & Ecology in partnership with Arts Council England, and was launched in London on December 2006 coinciding with the RSA, Arts Council England and London School of Economics & Political Science's symposia ‘No Way Back?’.

Accompanying the first year of the RSA’s Arts & Ecology programme, this compendium of essays, dialogues and commissioned pages by artists, new and reprinted texts and interviews by ecologists, cultural theorists, activists and curators explored art’s varied modes of response to notions of territory, the Earth and the emergencies of 21st century. In part a genealogy of ‘land’ and what has been understood by ‘the environment’ since the 1960s—with the activities of ‘Land artists' and the emergence of a popular ‘eco’-consciousness—the publication proposed and tested if and how our conceptions of art and artists are relevant to a global debate about the future of the planet, and where, how and why art might operate—at the grass roots, at a tangent, as propaganda, activism or as resistance, for example.

La publicación 'LAND, ART: A Cultural Ecology Handbook' fue un encargo del RSA Arts & Ecology en colaboración con el Arts Council England, y se presentó en Londres en Diciembre 2006 coincidiendo con el simposio ‘No Way Back?’ organizada por el RSA, el Arts Council England y la London School of Economics & Political Science.

Acompañando el primer año de actividades del programa Arts & Ecology iniciado por el RSA, este compendio de ensayos, diálogos y proyectos de artistas, textos nuevos o reimpresos y entrevistas a ecologistas, teóricos culturales, activistas y comisarios exploró el modos en que el arte ha respondido a las nociones de territorio, la Tierra y las emergencias del siglo XXI. En parte una genealogía de la tierra y lo que se ha denominado como 'el medioambiente' desde los años sesenta – tras las actividades de los llamados artistas del Land art y la emergencia de la 'eco'-consciencia – la publicación analizó nuestras concepciones sobre el arte y los artistas, cuestionando su lugar en el debate global sobre el futuro del planeta y sobre dónde, cómo y porqué el arte puede operar y de qué manera: como tangente, propaganda, activismo o desde la resistencia.
