KOSMICA x Astroculture

About

Each KOSMICA session is unique: bringing together the cosmically curious and culturally quirky space community for a social mix of art—space programmes - a film screening, performance or live concert with a short presentation, talk and debate about alternative and cultural uses of space. KOSMICA x Astroculture - A night of performance and conversations with Kapwani Kiwanga and Dr Nick Campion. Alexander CT Geppert describes Astroculture as a cultural history of outer space and extra-terrestrial life in the twentieth-century imagination. KOSMICA x Astroculture takes this as a point of departure, focusing on artistic practice centred on the cultural understanding of outer space. This research area brings together space enthusiasts who have wide-ranging interests that include performance, cosmology, Afrofuturism, science fiction literature, mythology and philosophy.
