    Diving into the deep-time of Eurasia, various cosmological, mythical and technical networks can be explored. Beyond their anthropological and historical value, they provide us with cosmotechnic tools that relate us to time, space and communities differently. How can critical lenses and operational models from the past serve as alternative and futurist social forms? How can a commons-based relational network encompass nature as much as the social realm?

    To coincide with the questions about the future that the Wiener Festwochen have chosen to address, the festival has invited four personalities to give inspiring keynote presentations. Drawing on outstanding artistic, curatorial and academic practices, the lectures held on four consecutive evenings are certain to unleash the imagination.

    As part of the Predictably Unpredictable lab, which reflects on the festival of the future, the issues raised will be explored further the following day. The keynotes are part of MITTEN am Abend, a four-day series that combines lectures, performances and music into a highly diverse programme.

    • Biography

      Curator and researcher Mi You teaches at the Academy of Media Arts Cologne and is one of the curators of the 13th Shanghai Biennale. Her transhistorical and transcultural research establishes connections between antiquity and futurism. Her interest in the politics of technological futures led her to work on ‘implementable speculations’, as in the exhibition Sci-(no)-fiction.
