If I Can't Dance warmly invites you to the exhibition How We Behave / An Archive of Radical Practice, a collection of queer and feminist life stories, brought together over the past ten years by DAI's esteemed theory tutor Grant Watson. They depart from Michel Foucault’s call for ‘non-fascist’ forms of life, and focus on how people experiment, reflect on their relationships and on political agency, including at moments of crisis and social transformation. The exhibition is presented in collaboration with IHLIA LGTBI Heritage, part of Amsterdam’s public library OBA Oosterdok, and is accompanied by a presentation of materials from this collection dedicated to the LGBTI communities and histories in the Netherlands. Exhibition: 11 December 2023 – 7 January 2024. Opening: Sunday 10 December, 16-18hr
Wednesday December 7, 2023 ~ the genocide underway in Palestine is unbearable, torturous, a hellscape. We are incandescent with rage and pain. STAND UP TO GENOCIDE ~ TOGETHER FOR PALESTINE ! For the sake of humanity, we need CEASEFIRE NOW. Enduring peace is only achievable by a political agreement which ends OCCUPATION and APARTHEID. Break the endless cycles of violence. Violence to which Europe has been shamefully complicit in so many ways and for so long. DAI offers an evolving feed, or call it a social media frenzy- filter. Dear members of the extended DAI community are sharing links with us ~ and your suggestions are most welcome as well, send them to: WORLD@dutchartinstitute.eu
Archive Stories is interested in reflective pieces on different archives and archiving practices in and on Palestine. State and institutional archives in Palestine have been and continue to be targeted and destroyed as part of a long process of violent settler-colonialism and apartheid. This speaks to the urgency of a continued commitment to archiving the many dimensions of Palestinian life.
