“Space Technology has Produced a Reality Stronger than Our Political Reality.” An Interview with Miha Turšič

What is the role of art in space institutions and how can one think about outer space in the context of artistic initiatives? Miha Turšič is a co-founder of the Cultural Centre of European Space Technologies (KSEVT Vitanje) and a project developer at the Dutch-based Waag society, which develops socially-progressive, fair, and inclusive connections between science, technology, and art. In the interview, he addresses the outlined questions through a combination of conceptual and methodological reflections, as well as references to specific artistic initiatives and projects that interrogate and re-assess contemporary approaches to space exploration. In doing so, Turšič highlights the effects that the development of space technology has had on the ways in which humans understand their existence on Earth.
