Miracle Marathon

Serpentine Gallery

08 Oct 201609 Oct 2016

The Serpentine’s annual festival of ideas brings together practitioners from the fields of activism, anthropology, art, architecture, literature, music, philosophy, theology and science over two days and in two locations across London, Day 1 at the Serpentine Sackler Gallery and Day 2 at Second Home.

Focusing on ritual, repetition and magical thinking, the Miracle Marathon considers ways in which the imaginary can not only predict, but also play a part in affecting long-term futures. This follows on from the 2014 Extinction Marathon, which presented environmental and human crises facing the world today (co-curated with Gustav Metzger), and the 2015Transformation Marathon, which proposed ways of identifying and effecting change in the face of increasing complexity. The concept for this year’s Marathon was developed together with artist Sophia Al-Maria.

Both days of the Miracle Marathon are streamed live at radio.serpentinegalleries.org, as a video stream on Day 1 and as a radio broadcast on Day 2.
