KOSMOS², ARTIST TALKS at GORKI THEATER, Studio Я (2015-2017)

THE TITLE OF THIS ARTIST TALK SERIES KOSMOS² RECALLS THE FAMOUS KOSMOS LECTURES BY ALEXANDER VON HUMBOLDT. DURING THE 19TH CENTURY, AFTER HIS COLONIAL JOURNEYS, HUMBOLDT HELD THESE LECTURES AT THE BERLIN SINGAKADEMIE – TODAY’S MAXIM GORKI THEATRE – TO CLASSIFY AND DESCRIBE THE WORLD. HOW CAN WE TODAY TRANSFORM SPACES AND DECOLONISE CONCEPTS OF KNOWLEDGE? THE SERIES KOSMOS², CURATED AND DIRECTED BY GRADA KILOMBA, INTENDS TO CREATE NEW CONFIGURATIONS OF POWER AND KNOWLEDGE. THIS IS A SPACE WHERE ARTISTS WHO WERE FORCED TO LEAVE HOME, CROSS BORDERS, AND BECOME REFUGEES, GIVE US AN INSIGHT INTO THEIR WORK. KOSMOS² IS CONEPTUALISED BY GRADA KILOMBA, AS A LABORATORY TO RE-THINK ARTISTIC PRACTICES AND EXPERIMENT NEW POLITICAL INTERVENTIONS.
SHE HAS DIRECTED THE FOLLOWING SHOWS  KOSMOS² LABOR #1 KNOWLEDGE, #2 FILM, #3 MUSIC, #4 PERFORMANCE, #5 ACTIVISM, #6 FINE ARTS, #7 DANCE, #8 LITERATURE, #9 PARTY, #10 VIDEO INSTALLATIONS, #11 ILLUSTRATION AND VISUAL ARTS, #12 PHOTOGRAPHY
