Shokouk: A Cosmicomedy in Four Acts

Shokouk: A Cosmicomedy in Four Acts

A vertiginous odyssey of transhistorical vignettes exploring infrastructures of space travel and the cosmic imaginary. Documenting interstellar machinations connecting 12th century Persia to a fictional Chinese company ‘Skybridge Unlimited’, Shokouk traces an anachronistic loop of historical facts and archival fabulations to question the violence and sublimity implied through conquests of the outer wilds.
