Guided Tour through the exhibition Stone Telling
FRI 04 10 2019, 5 pm

 

The curators Daniela Hahn and Andrea Lehsiak as well as the artists Hanna Mattes, Marianne Vlaschits and Claudia Lomoschitz will give a guided tour through the exhibition.

 

Literature on feminist science fiction is the hot topic everyone’s talking about: authors like Ursula K. Le Guin or Octavia Butler are trending. But why now? When uncertainty arises as to how people can live on the frequently named "destroyed planet" and how machines could more or less replace us in the near future, speculative future plans are needed that break with traditional patterns of thinking and experience. In the current exhibition in Kunstraum Niederoesterreich, the reception of feminist sci-fi in contemporary art is investigated and displayed. On the tour of the exhibition, you embark on an archaeological journey into the future with the curators Daniela Hahn and Andrea Lehsiak.

 

The selected works reflect science fiction as a possibility to think differently and formulate social utopias. Because, as Donna Haraway writes, "It is important which stories we tell, in order to tell other stories; it is important, which concepts we think of in order to create new concepts." In the very near future, concrete application of this could help to figure out how to survive in the face of advanced exploitation and destruction of our planet.
