Anton Vidokle: Citizens of the Cosmos

‘Citizens of the Cosmos’ examines the artist Anton Vidokle’s films and the Cosmist philosophy underpinning them. It features essays and conversations with Vidokle by seminal contemporary theorists, curators, and artists. The book’s contributors speculate on Vidokle’s Cosmist conceptions of technological immortality, resurrection of all ancestors, radical museology, and space travel, grappling with how these ideas embroil or crystallize contemporary theories, artistic and technological imaginaries: atmospheric manipulation, cryonics, biopolitics, extraplanetary prospecting, geo-engineering, genetics.
