In this age of Climate Breakdown, Trump, Brexit, Surveillance, Violence, Mass Extinction, and Pandemic, crises override crises constantly. These constant crises beget anxiety and parallesis. Laing brilliantly makes the case for why art matters more than ever, as a force of both resistance and repair.
