Archiving the Anthropocene: New Taxonomies
Between Art and Science
Edited by Cristina Baldacci & Emiliano Guaraldo
This double issue of Holotipus welcomes contributions on the relationship between contemporary archival processes and the visual, media and performing arts, and between the scientific production of knowledge and aesthetic practices. At the same time, in order to represent the complexity and potential of the debate around these themes, the issue aims to also include critical perspectives within or as response to the aesthetic framework established by the Anthropocene thesis and by Western natural history. Particularly welcomed are contributions from interdisciplinary scholars working the fields of the visual arts, philosophy, and the environmental humanities across media and geographies, as well as from artists and designers engaging with these topics.

Jacob Rudolph Hendrik Neervoort van de Poll
(June 1862 in ‘s-Hertogenbosch – December 1924 in Monaco)
Duch entomologist and art collector.
Van de Polls had sometimes been mayors and sheriffs in Amsterdam but Jacobus was an illegitimate son. When his stepfather died at the age of 42, he left the Rijksmuseum a collection of 52 paintings. For this gift his son was allowed to carry the name Van de Poll. Jacob (or Jacobus) amassed a vast beetle collection, much of it purchased from the Paris insect dealers Auguste Sallé and Émile Deyrolle. He travelled to the Dutch Antilles and joined a diplomatic and trade delegation to Japan. In the Japanese garden he had a sort of a pagode built for his collection. The collection was sold on his death and specimens are now found in many museum collections.
