Performative Lecture in the framework of Fantastic Wednesday by Angela Anderson, PhD candidate, PhD in Practice, Academy of Fine Arts Vienna.

The precedence of financial value, and economical thinking and logic, has been wholly and manifestly normalized under capitalism. However, this anthropocentric quantitative measurement is increasingly incommensurable with the actual effects of the misogyno-capitalocene. This performative lecture will examine this space of dissonance from a ecosexual feminist perspective, positing a non-anthropocentric queer ethics of value in the face of the multiple human-induced crises that are currently unfolding across the globe.
