The Past, Present and Future of Space Accumulation

The Past, Present and Future of Space Accumulation

Maria Küchen, Markus Gunneflo & Roman Privalov. Moderator: Majsa AllelinZäta

What happens when capital moves into space? In this session, we reflect on today’s space expansion through historical retrospectives, stories about encounters with present day astronauts and cosmonauts and thoughts about contemporary space culture and politics. We investigate the link between astronomy and colonial history, and the relationship between human space endeavours and decolonization on Earth. As more aspects of our daily lives depend on technological advances in space, we need to understand the role that capital accumulation plays in future space expansion. The session starts with individual talks and ends with a joint debate between the participants.
