This is a podcast about objects, in particular about theories that have recently brought us new perspectives on objects from contemporary art and theory. In this episode, McKenzie Wark, Liam Young and Mette Edvardsen talk about space. Space, and the spaces we inhabit as mediating objects. Space as an object of desire, as the ultimate “outer”. Space as a medium for extremely strange objects, from heavenly bodies to UFOs and many other myths. A three-way look at the idea of space, from political theory to performance art.
