S+T+ARTS : Adriana Knouf
While humanity is on the threshold of venturing deep into space, are we bound to repeat the same mistakes we made on earth, colonizing space and capitalizing on resources and living beings? Let’s instead imagine a future for space, that is queer, trans, decolonized, beyond binary thinking and themes of purity.
As part of the pan-european program S+T+ARTS Repairing the Present, Adriana Knouf, PhD (NL/US), Artist, author and xenologist, has been in residency at Art Hub Copenhagen.
Adriana examines how art can contribute to the highly technical realms of aerospace, astronautics and space exploration. As an artist and scientist, the question is raised of how one can approach outer space from a queer, trans, and post-colonial perspective.
In this video Adriana Knouf explains about her work TX-2 : MOONSHADOW which was created during her S+T+ARTS Residency.
This project has received funding from the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Communications Networks, Content and Technology under grant agreement LC01641664.
