The Making of Earths
The Dr. Éva Kahán Foundation is pleased to announce the opening of the exhibition Geocinema: The Making of Earths at the Kahán Art Space Vienna from May 25th until July 31st, 2022.
The Making of Earths explores the longue durée of the modern trope that the future is manageable. Following a year-long, documentary-led research, the film traces current efforts made across China and South East Asia, to predict the future of Earth’s increasingly strange climates, in shadow of ever more control on land. A chasm widens between the lived experience of overwhelming uncertainty on the ground and the mass of data collected to profit off of this instability. The film picks up on these themes and subverts the idea of knowing, instead opening up spaces of disorientation within the paranoid structure of totality.
The exhibition will also include the premiere The Labour of Witnessing an audio work produced in Kyiv since the Russian invasion.
