Do 31. julija: razpis Modern Body Festival 2018 na temo Alien Bodies (različne discipline in formati):

With ALIEN BODIES, we want to seek, confront and empathize with the alien, whether that is our environment, ecosystem, other organisms (animals, plants, microorganisms), objects and matter, man-made technological aliens (robots, AIs and our algorithmic fabrications), the alienness of political, economical and cultural structures, or alien human beings in places near or remote who have become the invisible or undecipherable other.

We recognize that first and foremost the notion of the Alien is related to fear. While this fear is deeply human, as Aeschylus’ verse from 2500 years ago makes apparent, Modern Body Festival’s approach aims to overcome it. The goal is symbiosis and collaboration, not strife, nor annihilation, nor neglect. In this process, we see becoming the alien as a crucial strategy for learning how to interact with the world and understanding ourselves and our context.


Če ste zamudili Svetlobno gverilo v Ljubljani, lahko na sprehodu po centru še srečate nekaj elementov, na primer ta roj fantastičnih bitij v Soteski (vogalna ulica med Vegovo in Gregoričičevo). Sicer pa septembra sledi še izolska edicija festivala.

Zamišljanje drugačne pravičnosti skozi ZF.

Saul Williams dela Neptune Frost, ZF film o vasi iz recikliranih računalniških delov v Burundiju:

While Western intelligence looks to the usual suspects, a Dogon avatar whispers through a dream to reveal the coded mysteries of Sirius and the stars to an escaped coltan miner and an intersex runaway seeking refuge from a binary norm, revealing her divine circuitry as the eye of the storm. When their connection sparks the MartyrLoserKing is born.

MartyrLoserKing, the elusive African hacker whose team of “losers” and outcasts ignite the imagination of the world’s most “connected” generation through deep space, deep web penetration. A virtual hero for a world caught in perpetual analogue exploitation. Neptune Frost is the MartyrLoserKing.

Carrie Fisher se bo posthumno pojavila v IX. epizodi Vojne zvezd.
