Making reference to the exploratory nature of space travel, and all its attendant problematics and projections, “Women in Space” thematizes the role of scale and space and power in envisioning women in the art system. Who is alien here, and what kind of system, solar or other?

Moderated by Chus Martínez and Quinn Latimer, this symposium is a public event within the framework of a long-term research collaboration between the Art Institute in Basel and Instituto Susch / Art Stations Foundation CH.

The symposium is made possible thanks to the support of the Federal Office of Culture FOC.
