Science In Action! A Craig Baldwin Retrospective

Program 1: Rockets and Raptures

Yerba Buena Center for the Arts

Our Baldwin series kicks off with the artist’s double-fisted take on the compilation doc. We offer the classic coupling of RocketKitKongoKit-1986’s energized exposè on neo-colonialism in Africa-with Tribulation 99: Alien Anomalies Under America, 1991’s psychotronic and paranoic pseudo-pseudo-doc that connects the dots and blows the cover on the Hollow Earth, the Quetzal conspiracy, Latin American-U.S. “relations,” the secret history of the twentieth century and more. As a special opening night party favor, Baldwin performs live with Day and Night and Day. (Steve Polta)
