RADIO ATHÈNES: HOW TO CLONE A MAMMOTH
Radio Athènes invites you to 'How to Clone a Mammoth (In Three Voices and With a Fishermen‘s Exaggeration)', a reading night on the poetics of de-extinction in the economy of clicks based on writings by Valentinas Klimašauskas. Using the structure of traditional Lithuanian polyphonic songs, the night will unite fragments, poems, quotes, stories about new friendships (as a metaphor for an old internet), 3D printing humans on Mars, teleporting cloned mammoths, the Radically Extended Time Residency of Jaromir Hladík, why Gertrude Stein would not pass the Turing test, the AI of language, and random companies of post-humanist assemblages.
Valentinas Klimašauskas is a curator and writer interested in the robotics of belles-lettres and the uneven distribution of the future. His book “B and/or an Exhibition Guide In Search of Its Exhibition” published in 2014 by Torpedo Press, Oslo, contains written exhibitions that floated in time and space with or within a joke, one’s mind, Voyager 1, Chauvet Cave or inside the novel “2666” by Roberto Bolaño. Valentinas lives and works between Athens and Vilnius.
Wednesday, 8th July, from 8pm
Petraki 15, Athens
