This month’s KOSMICA, curated by Jareh Das, focuses on Astroculture as a cultural history of outer space and extra-terrestrial life in the twentieth-century imagination. We will bring together space enthusiasts who have wide-ranging interests that include performance, cosmology, Afrofuturism, science fiction literature, music, mythology and philosophy.
The evening will include a performance by artist Kapwani Kiwangs and a short film screening followed by a conversation between Kapwani Kiwangs and Dr Nick Campion about cultural cosmology theories around Astroculture. (NOTE: Kapwani Kiwangs’ performance will not be livestreamed or filmed).
