This book deals with the art of the Anthropocene in art theory. The last 500 years of poaching global capitalism, also known as globalization, have resulted in the Anthropocene that we have to face today, specifically in the increasingly clear future of global warming. Instead of continuing to balk at the idea of globalization, which is based on the Western ontology of presence and its political economy, we should stand in the exceptional state of the climate crisis, face up to the fate of contemporary mankind itself, rethink our relations with the world, courageously step out of the philosophy and political economy taught to us by the modern West, and also step out of the limit of history of Western art of the past 500 years, reflect on our anthropocene situation, and lay out the coordinates of our art in the anthropocene.
