Join Suzanne Treister online for a virtual séance to a hypothetical museum in the cosmos.

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.

This event originates from Suzanne Treister’s project, The Escapist BHST (Black Hole Spacetime) (2018-19), a Serpentine commission.
