(xa) or,
(a nonhuman subject manifest through the walls of this theatre performing themselves)

in the introduction to architect markus miessen's book crossbenching
accelerationist philosopher armen avanessian invented the concept of 'xenoarchitecture'.

in brussels, a curatorial collective adopted the concept, calling themselves perhaps it is high time for a xenoachitecture to match.

in 2017, they initiated a public program of conversations
culminating in a theatrical event integrating theoretical discussions
with video installation and performance.

a book about the initiative is forthcoming on sternberg press.
