Please join us for a talk and discussion on Saturday afternoon 3 September, 4–6 PM at Looiersgracht 60 in the context of Spiritus - Archiving the (un)Imaginable
, a project-in-progress by Doina Kraal & Roger Cremers (who have been invited by Radical Reversibility and Looiersgracht 60 as the first artists-in-residence of the newly installed Public Research Residency).
We have invited theologian and writer Taede A. Smedes and Philippe Ailleris (ESTEC), to discuss UFO's and UAP's, the possibilities of extraterrestrial lifeforms and what this means for the human imagination, cosmological awareness and attitudes of modesty. If nature perhaps is more imaginative than we are, should we not look for life and intelligence beyond our planet without prejudice?
In 2022 Taede A. Smedes published 'We zijn misschien niet alleen. UFO's toen en nu
' (Perhaps we're not alone. UFOs then and now).
Philippe Ailleris is the founder of the Unidentified Aerospace Phenomena (UAP) Reporting Scheme
and The UFO Data Project
Saturday 3 September, 4–6 PM (Welcome from 3 PM onward if you want to see the work-in-progress in the exhibition space)
Looiersgracht 60, Amsterdam
