Verina Gfader: Cloud Chamber

120 DKK
Cloud Chamber takes its roots in a performance project, titled The Guests 做东, devised by Verina Gfader for the 11th Shanghai Biennale, ‘Why Not Ask Again: Arguments, Counter-arguments, and Stories’. Departing from the inclusion of the biennale audience to write a future folk tale, Cloud Chamber invites to an array of voices, who loosely respond to a call for: A vision/ proposal/ script for how one may have to approach ‘cosmological quest’ when thinking forwards – towards the 22nd century; or what exactly the proposition of a ‘cosmological quest’ in turn asks us (a commons) to do. It is a book on: fiction and translation and translation through time; post literacy; world picturing-world typing; and cartographic entanglements and expressions of subjectivity; through the lens a social imaginary of worlding or cosmological quest. Art at its core?
