This essay re-examines and historicizes the artist collective UFOlab’s exhibitions, talks, events, performances as well as public interventions. Through their collective art practice from 2004 to 2010 they contested and re-framed normative perceptions of racism and transnational adoption from a post- and decolonial feminist viewpoint. UFOlab was primarily active in Denmark and South Korea but through their collaborations and outreach, they connected with a global network of cultural workers, activists and researchers who challenged official narratives around transnational adoption by adoption agencies, sending and receiving countries, working instead towards adoptee rights and nuancing the discourse around transnational adoption and its complex global history tied to war, militarism, white privilege, patriarchy, and class.
