Bio

Dr. Nico Jenkins is a theorist and artist whose work focuses on finitude and uncertainty. His most recent book, Echoes of Nothing (Punctum,2019) is a meditation on thinking the “between” between Dōgen and Heidegger, exploring  gaps and spaces where their thinking overlap,converge, and dissipate.  Jenkins is Visiting Associate Professor at MECA in Portland, Maine. He also teaches an intensive seminar on philosophy and craft at the European Graduate School in Switzerland.As a photographer,he chronicles the forgotten spaces of the contemporary semi-urban landscape.His photographs explore the ignored environments which exist just beyond the periphery of capitalism’s gaze.
