Resourced is a portfolio of hand-produced prints organized and created by the Justseeds Artists’ Cooperative in 2010. It focuses on international resource extraction and its effects on our climate, and includes 26 artist prints (created by artists from six countries), with screenprinted covers and a colophon (front sheet listing the artists), as well as a booklet with additional information (which also has a screenprinted cover).

For centuries now, industries have been mining the globe in search of raw materials that can be converted into profitable commodities, displacing innumerable communities and leaving in their wake toxic, hazardous, and ecologically devastated environments. While consumers experiment with greener lifestyles, the majority of the globe’s population is left to deal with the ecological fallout of industrial and technological “progress.” These are inequalities that only stand to increase as climate change and the unending capitalist pursuit of natural resources produce even more precarious ecologies. Already, thousands upon thousands of species are extinct or endangered, and millions upon millions of people have been thrust off of their land and into ecologically, politically, and economically hazardous conditions.

This is an “exhibition in a book,” a teaching tool, a collection of reproducible graphics for activists and organizers, and a dialogue starter for community spaces, schools, conferences, and galleries. It can be used to help ask important questions about our environment:

  • Who benefits from the extraction of natural resources and who pays the costs?
  • Are there viable possibilities for alternative energy sources?
  • Is it possible to distribute energy more equitably?
  • What does resistance to Western and corporate climate policies look like?
  • What role can workers in resource and energy sectors play in this resistance?
  • How does environmental devastation effect different communities along the lines of race, class, and gender?

Each artist was invited to work with a social justice organization in their community, and some of those that we connected with were the Asian Pacific Environmental Network, Centro Autónomo para la Creación Intercultural de Tecnologías Apropiadas (CACITA), Detroiters Working for Environmental Justice, the Environmental Justice League of Rhode Island, the Forum for Zirahuén in Defense of Blue Lake, How Green, the Indigenous Environmental Network, and The Point Community Development Corp. (in the South Bronx).

We offer exhibition copies of all of our portfolios for loan to schools, galleries, libraries, community spaces, and other institutions and organizations that want to temporarily exhibit our work! Check out this page for more details and to get started!
