Modeling the Unknown (working title)

My Meisterschüler*innen project engages with the production of knowledge about the unknowns by countering dominancies. I will be looking at palaeontological practices and their aesthetics both in the West and in the Global South, and also at museum making in the context of modernism. I will appropriate model-making as a concentrated form for depicting both future and past realities.
