This edition of TRACEY examines connections between drawing and the concept of Anthropocene.

The motivation for this special edition of TRACEY was twofold. Firstly, there has been an explosion of literature from many different fields accounting for developments in relation to Anthropocene thinking. It is high time to acknowledge and bring together a selection of the many rich and varied research applications of drawing encompassed under this term. Secondly, we have a sense that at its core, drawing is intimately connected to the concept of Anthropocene. Put simply, reduced to is basics Anthropocene is about trace, of action and its imprint. We might say the same about drawing. As such, Drawing Anthropocene is a particularly timely addition to the growing body of drawing research that looks beyond the borders of drawing to other disciplines and issues in the world.
