Lecture-performance with Karen Barad and Manuela Infante on the horizon as a boundary between the known and unknown.
Ever since Manuela Infante was a child, the one thing that has connected her to her father is an endless curiosity for the unknown. Yet they developed it in very different ways: Manuela as an artist, her father an astronomer. As long as they remember they held long conversations on dark matter and the origin of the universe, but there was always one concept that recurred: Horizon.
Horizon is the boundary dividing what can be known and what will never be knowable. Just as with the sea horizon, you can try to chase it, but it will always move further away, making sure there is always a darkness out there; a place that human knowledge can never access. That territory, that horizon, is not only out there at the end of our sight, it’s also in here, stretching into our body, our psyche, our biography and our history.
“The universe loses its memory too,” said my father. “When the universe expands faster than our horizon, things start getting lost in the dark.”
This evening focuses on the Horizon as a stretching, morphing boundary. A night to talk about the things we know we will never know through the modality of the interview, monsters, imagination, darkness, cutting-together-apart and other ghostly presences. With Manuela Infante, Karen Barad, Laura Cull and Diego Noguera.
