Yazan Khalili and Larissa Sansour will participate in the group exhibition After the Last Sky at Ballhaus Naunynstrasse in Berlin, Germany.
Khalili will present part of an older work entitled The Aliens (2012), which is a story about a group of astronauts returning to a landscape they think they have left. Upon returning, they are confronted with unexpected scenery which makes them question if their act of return is real, or if all returns are fictional. Sansour will be presenting her award-winning sci-fi short In the Future They Ate from the Finest Porcelain (2015), which examines the politics of archeology and how myths of the past can become historic interventions with the power to create nationhood.
Ballhaus Naunynstrasse is a cultural institution that showcases interdisciplinary projects, film series, readings, discussions, concerts and theatre performances. Dedicated to post-migrant stories, Ballhaus Naunynstrasse's curated programme focuses on the promotion of a younger generation of artists with the aim to create new fields of experimentation and artistic approaches. Since its re-opening in 2008, the centre rapidly attracted artists from migrant and post-migrant backgrounds in Berlin and beyond.
