Xenofeminist audio-visual collaboration (2017/2018)
“We humans are transitioning out of our mythical monopolies. Stories we have circulated fueling images of exceptional intelligence have forked, and forked hard, as we confront the radical diversification of what intelligence even is and what it could do. The post-Anthropocenic possibility compels our humility, to re-map self-understanding and hypothesize new compositions of being a ‘we’.”
A three-panel audio-visual installation by Laboria Cuboniks (Katrina Burch-sound, Diann Bauer-video, Patricia Reed-script design) with Joy Mariama Smith (vocals).
Premiered at VERMÖGEN, The Future of Demonstration (Season 1): “Alien Introspection” (2017, Vienna).
Later adapted for the Post-Cyber Feminist International (2017) at the ICA LONDON organized by Helen Hester and Rosalie Doubal, and exhibited in Peer-to-Peer, Collective Practices in New Art (2018) at the MUSEUM OF ART IN ŁÓDŹ curated by Agnieszka Pindera.
