EDITORIAL

            Estelle Zhong asks what art can do in the face of the ecological crisis. Considering this crisis as a crisis of sensibility, Zhong, following the studies of Bruno Latour, sees art less as an object that should make us feel a bit more “guilty”—we already have enough of that—than as an object of conciliation and reconciliation, following an ecology of reconciliation (as Michael Rosenweig formulated it in 2003) and of reconstruction (Paul Shepard, 1967).
