Landscapes have always been defined throughtheir collective relationships – between people and other living things, material objects and ephemeral entities, and situated actions and grounded processes. These are worlds produced through socio-material entanglements that can be read as common practices, shared experiences, and public concerns. Landscapes are only possible through the combined contribution of humans and non-humans, interacting, sharing between, providing for, and making with. However, in recognising prevailing contradictions in many landscape practices; across contemporary art, architecture, and film; we see the potential of landscapes being undermined through the perpetual claiming and reframing by and of individuals. Whether in god-like views from above[1] or the mirror and mirage[2] that landscapes can create, landscape practices too often foreground hegemony and embolden individuals with power, while simultaneously concealing the actions from which they are produced. This symposium critically reflects on dominant landscape techniques, discusses landscapes that are marginalised through globalising market forces, and focusses on the collective nature of landscapes – from planetary climates to intimate private spaces. It investigates the common, shared, and public endeavours that produce the world of which we are part.
