A photo-film by Joanna Zylinska, to accompany her book, The End of Man: A Feminist Counterapocalypse (University of Minnesota Press, 2018).
The End of Man: A Feminist Apocalypse offers an ironic take on various contemporary eco-political crises, from the climate catastrophe and the threats to the human species posed by artificial intelligence through to the widespread rise in populism. In response, the author outlines an ethical vision of a “feminist counter-apocalypse,” which challenges many of the proposed solutions to those crises, in their masculinist and technicist guises. The accompanying photo-film Exit Man showcases a “local museum of the Anthropocene” of the author’s making, with a view to envisaging a different future for humanity—and a different mode of scholarly engagement.
