The Museum of Black Hole Spacetime Séance with Suzanne Treister

Quote:The Museum of Black Hole Spacetime Séance will take place virtually. We will make an intergalactic and astral journey to the hypothetical museum in the cosmos, The Museum of Black Hole Spacetime, which first appeared in a painting from Suzanne Treister‘s project, The Escapist BHST (Black Hole Spacetime) (2018-19).

During the séance we will travel 400 billion light years through space from Earth to enter and make group contact with the museum. We will question its function, its contents, its origin, and what it might be able to tell us about the mysteries of the cosmos. Participants will produce drawings and texts describing their visions—so please prepare paper, pens, watercolors, or other documentation material. BSL interpretation will be available during the séance.

Quote:Tantra, spirit mediums, Obeah – why have things become ‘a bit witchy’ in the art world of late? Our writer takes a trip into deep space to find out.

Quote:Treister does not see herself within this lineage of spirit mediums, instead describing an interest in “areas of investigation currently unexplained by science, some of which may turn out to be differently accepted in future”.

The Museum of Black Hole Spacetime grew out of a residency at the European Organization for Nuclear Research (Cern) in Geneva. “One can look at much art practice as emanating from thought processes which access deeper levels of consciousness and which, as Bruce Nauman suggested, may ‘reveal mystic truths’,” she says. “Having spent a lot of time at Cern I would say this can apply equally to theoretical particle physicists.”
'Historically, we may regard materialism as a system of dogma set up to combat orthodox dogma...Accordingly we find that, as ancient orthodoxies disintegrate, materialism more and more gives way to scepticism.'
