Hošek Contemporary is pleased to invite you to the opening of SPACELAB - Into the Unknown, an exhibition by Artist on the Moon. Curated by Gloria Aino Grzywatz and Peggy Schoenegge from peer to space.
Guests are requested to wear a FFP2 mask and provide the organisers with their name, address, phone number and present their negative Covid-19 test no older than 24 hours OR a vaccine certificate. If the incident is under 50, a Covid-19 test will not be required.
SPACELAB - Into the Unknown creates a laboratory situation, which invites a comprehensive scientific consideration of Borghildur Indrida’s project. In a site-specific installation at the ship hold of Hošek Contemporary, visitors are immersed into the artistic discourse. The artist confronts us with fundamental questions of systems of power and ownership interests. What claims are being made in relation to unmanned territories? What hierarchies and systems emerge? How can women assert themselves within patriarchal structures? In the artist's peaceful gesture of restitution, the complexity and insanity of nationalized power relations clarify and remind us of our position in the solar system. With the gaze toward and the journey to the moon, the focus of our being is directed to the essential – an equalized, respectful and participatory society without exploitation.
