Following directly on many of the ideas implicit in the previous chapter, this chapter explores the potential to open art history, as a humanities discipline, into the discourses of posthumanism. This involves drawing on productive earlier histories that, like recent counterparts, offer a critique of anthropocentric perspectives which dominate mainstream art history. Both Guattari’s notion of ‘the three ecologies’, and Braidotti’s work are key in this regard, as is the radical scientific philosophy of Barad and other critics of normative ways of parcelling up knowledge and ontology. The chapter also looks at the challenges posed by the enormity of scale in aligning the humanities with environmental concern, as well as intersubjectivity as a useful term to help shape future art historical approaches.
