This event series pays tribute to the powerful alternative images of 
mothering we've inherited through the pioneering work of feminist Sci-Fi 
writers, and examines their sustained relevance within the 
socio-political landscape of today. Through a live Talk-Show format, 
artists, scientists and scholars are invited to programme their "ideal 
TV and reading evening" on the topic, so that the audience (re)discovers 
the works through the guest's eyes.

science, public workshopology, performance, installation, documentary 
film, and speculative fiction. Since 2015, Maggic’s research has 
centered on hormone biopolitics and environmental toxicity, and how the

internationally including Philadelphia Museum of Art (US), Science 
Gallery London (UK), Migros Museum of Contemporary Art (CH), Haus der

Workshop (HK). In 2017, their project “Open Source Estrogen” was awarded 
Honorary Mention at Prix Ars Electronica Hybrid Arts, and in 2019 Maggic 
completed a 10-month Fulbright residency in Yogyakarta, Indonesia 
investigating the role of Javanese mysticism in the plastic pollution 
crisis. Maggic is a current member of the online network Hackteria: Open 
Source Biological Art and the laboratory theater collective Aliens in 
Green, as well as a recent contributor to the radical syllabus project
