Drawing after Nature

From wildlife topographies to the ecosystem services of marine and Alpine fauna, 2010 – 2020. Nicole Schuck’s filigree drawings stem from in-depth research in and into the animals’ habitats. The book traces her investigation of the deep-rooted connection between animals and humans, ecosystems, the value of wildlife, nature conservation and economics. Analyses by experts from a broad range of disciplines – art history, biology, bioeconomics, marine biology and philosophy – provide a deeper understanding of her works from the past decade. Valued Animals not only showcases Schuck’s artistic practice, but also aims to contribute to the current debate on nature conservation that is more relevant than ever before. By linking her work with perspectives from other academic and scientific disciplines, the subject is released from otherwise hermetic milieus such as nature conservation, politics, economics and biology and opened up for a broader discussion that is long overdue.
