Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperOther research output


While the notion of autarky is often contested in terms of feasibility and desirability, art and design projects that deal with autarky seem to highlight the positive socio-cultural and ecological effects of autarkic living. This paper will discuss three notable media artworks that highlight these positive effects of autarkic living, and will unify them with opposing views by introducing a social network model of autarky.
