Editionen - Birthday of the World w/ Aniara Omann (January 2022)


In Birthday of the world, Aniara Omann touches on existential terrain that forms a metaphysical relation between Earth and Mars in a figurative manner. Borrowing the title from science-fiction writer Ursula K. Le Guin, Omann points at the question of humanity’s situatedness in (re)configurations of worlding and unworlding.
