Offsetted traces the emergence of the valuation of nature. The book by the artist duo Cooking Sections (Daniel Fernández Pascual & Alon Schwabe) unpacks forms of dispossession that are becoming more common through the protection—not only destruction—of natural environments. Through a series of artistic and architectural interventions, Offsetted ties into current struggles for climate justice worldwide, contesting neoliberalism as a savior of its own ecological contradictions. It challenges conservation models based on “natural capital,” while proposing new spatial tactics to de-financialize the environment. Besides a photographic documentary and the works by Cooking Sections, the book assembles numerous contributions by interdisciplinary artists and scientists: Nico Alexandroff, Penny Allan, Adeniyi Asinyabi, Martin Bryant, Matthew Darmour-Paul, Kristen Lyons, Mari Margil, Hanna Rullman, Isabel Sandeman, Huhana Smith, Pablo Solón, David Ssemwogerere, Irene Sunwoo, Paulo Tavares, Rosa Whiteley.
