Summary/Abstract: Rybicka outlines the relationship between the city and nature in two spheres: contemporary art and the history of urban greenery. Symptomatically, both tend to depart from the paradigm of exploiting nature and move towards strategic cooperation between the human and natural environments. This development allows Rybicka to formulate the notion of the biopolis, a postulative concept that integrates the city’s material, social and political life with the natural environment.
