A happening inside the black hole – science after clarity by Simon/e van Saarloos

For three months, writer, philosopher and queer body Simon/e van Saarloos resided in a Nanoscience Institute in Delft. She observed and questioned the scientist’s daily practice. Simon/e documented gossip and ghosts while asking what science could look like from a radical different perspective. Supported by Black Feminist Theory, Simon/e explores how science could be more difficult, and thereby more just.We conclude the last weekend with the BAD Special event. More info soon.
