UF13 SPECULATIVE SOLUTION
Urbanomic commissioned Florian Hecker to make a new work exploring themes from philosopher Quentin Meillassoux's book After Finitude.

The commission takes the form of a sound piece with additional non-sonic elements. A preview performance took place on 3rd September 2010 at Urbanomic's Late at Tate: The Real Thing event at Tate Britain in September 2010.

A further developed version of Speculative Solution was performed at INSTAL in Glasgow, Friday 12 - Sunday 14th November 2010.

Further performances took place on 30th April 2011 at the Graham Foundation, Chicago, and at Documenta 13 in Kassel, 10 September 2012.
