ARNS Inke, "Zero Gravity, Anti-Mimesis and the Abolition of the Horizon. On Cosmokinetic Cabinet Noordung's "Postgravity Art", Leonardo, Vol.52, n°1, pp. 17-22, 2019

This article presents the work of the retro-utopian Slovenian performance and theater collective Cosmokinetic Cabinet Noordung and its effort to abolish mimetic art in zero gravity ("postgravity art"). It describes the origin of a space station rotating around its own axis (designed in 1928 by Hermann Potocnik Noordung in The Problem of Space Travel); questions the relationship between zero gravity and the historical avant-garde (especially Suprematism) as postulated by theater director Dragan Zivadinov; and sketches the past, present and future of the collective's 50-year project Noordung 1995-2045.
