SIGN THE PETITION TO STOP SYRIAN WAR CRIMINAL ASSAD ATTENDING THE COP 28 CLIMATE CONFERENCE !!! To the United Arab Emirates, host of COP 28, and all member states of the United Nations ~ Brutal dictator Bashar al-Assad must be held to account for crimes against humanity, not given a platform to greenwash the Syrian regime’s atrocities at the world’s climate conference ~ his first international conference since 2011 ~ Inviting Assad sends a clear message to all war criminals that impunity is the rule of law. We call on the host of COP 28, the United Arab Emirates, to uninvite Assad and we urge all UN member states to oppose the Syrian regime attending COP.
"If only our timelines could be replaced by timedials, in a metaphorical coding sense, could social media platforms generate more recursive, less-linear experiences? If this is asking (or expecting too) much from the US centric corporate owned platforms, then could a tonic, the tonic to go with the Djinn of the social media feed, be the parallel readings of Palestinian historians, writer and poets who invite us to longer term conjectures and durations?" From "TIMELINE PALESTINE" by Harun Morrison ( DAI, 2020). Read the full text as published by NERO's Giulia Crispiani (DAI, 2017) under the link.
We mourn the passing of our colleague, curator and theorist Aneta Szylak (1959-2023). In 2010 and 2011 she was zealously involved in the course "Affectionally Yours" tutored by the artists Phil Collins and Hito Steyerl and curated by If I Can't Dance I Don't Want To Be Part Of Your Revolution. The project brought tutors and students of the DAI to the Wyspa Art Institute, accommodated on the premises of the former Gdańsk Shipyard. The memories we carry of director Aneta's warm hospitality and outspoken political positioning, always accompanied by her unique blend of sophisticated fun and criticality will be forever cherished by all who participated. Rest in Power, dear Aneta.
