RU TALK: Space Witches by Rosa Nussbaum
On Tuesday, February 16, 2021 at 5:00 pm EST, Rosa Nussbaum will talk about her new work Space Witches as part of RU’s Food Futures Residency, followed by a Q+A.
Space Witches is an interactive web installation that re-examines the ideas surrounding inner and outer space through a feminist lens. The history of witchcraft and the history of gender and land ownership are deeply intertwined. Space Witches asks: What might space exploration look like if it drew on the traditions of witchcraft instead of capitalist colonialist expansionism? What if we included non-human perspectives in our calculations?
