Reparative Archeology Session

Friday, 20 September 2019, 10.00 am, diffrakt | centre for theoretical periphery
Saturday, 21 September 2019, 10.00 am, diffrakt | centre for theoretical periphery

Workshop with
Natalia Acevedo-Ferreira | Nathalie Anguezomo Mba Bikoro | edna bonhomme | Coven | Yvette Mutumba

Organised by
RAT (Reparative Archeology Team: Anna Bromley | Elke Bippus | Elke Gaugele | Elke Krasny)

Based on queer political and decolonial approaches, the session conceives artistic research as critical research unfolding in and with collective processes. Participation, recording and publication formats will be examined as part of collective artistic research. Points of departure are Saidiya Hartman’s tool of ‘critical fabulation’ and Eve Kosofski Sedgwick’s proposal of ‘reparative readings’. We will provide texts by both authors before the session.

Both days will be supported recordings of all participants, such Radical Note Takings, and live drawings of Natalia Acevedo-Ferreira. We intend to issue a small publication from the findings, radical note takings and drawings of the session.

To register for the session (both days only!), please provide a short statement regarding your interest in the workshop. Registration does not guarantee participation, which will be confirmed via email.

Please register via this form until 12 September 2019.

The session is part of the symposium Research Machine: Artistic Research and Aesthetic Thinking, 19-21 September 2019, Volksbühne Berlin, organized by Kathrin Busch and Dieter Mersch.
