The series ›landscapes and bodies‹ addresses the political, social and ecological consequences of mining and open-cast mining. The project explores local and global influences on landscapes and essentially how mining irreversibly alters the daily lives and living environments of local communities.

The chapter ›GOLD‹ looks at the overexploitation of the copper and gold mines of West Papua; ›COAL‹ in turn focuses on the re-naturalised Neuseenland (new lake land) of Leipzig. ›WATER‹ is an investigation of the continuous consequences of the extraction of raw materials in the Ruhr area and ›COLTAN‹ deals with the exploitative political and social structures of small-scale mining in eastern Congo. The four case studies draw parallels between distant places that have been seriously altered by resource extraction.
