Brigitta Muntendorf - Orbit - A war series
ORBIT – A WAR SERIES refers to the War Series (1966-1970) by the American artist Nancy Spero that shows in one hundred and fifty gouache the connection between sexuality and oppressive power structures.
The protagonists are female voices that have shed their physical bodies and have been cloned by AI: just as violence makes everyone a thing, the artificial voices are also in search of a place of becoming human. The texts are based on interviews, reports and documentaries from Afghanistan, Iran, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Poland, USA, Second World War in Asia or science fiction manifestos by female authors.
ORBIT – A WAR SERIES appeals to our inner images: it is listening that becomes a radical and political act, an act performed by the audience.
