"We live in the decaying ruins of the modern and colonial world-system. All around us we encounter the undead institutions that structure systemic inequality, border regimes, and subject forms. To make different futures possible, this undead world – which violently resists change in its refusal to die – must be laid to rest. Ceremony (Burial of an Undead World) is an exhibition that speaks of continuities among cosmologies and origin myths across space and time, only to upset, against this backdrop, the standard narratives of the modern era and its place in history". At DAI we are so proud that Elisa Giuliano (DAI, 2022) is one of the curators, together with (former DAI theory tutor) Anselm Franke, with Denise Ryner, Claire Tancons and Zairong Xiang. The many DAI alumni who were present at the opening at Haus der Kulturen der Welt on the 22nd of October, 2022 have thoroughly enjoyed Elisa's input to the show, a brilliant research closely interwoven with the topics she has been tackling in various imaginative and profound ways during her studies with DAI. For those who could not join the opening: go visit before December 30. Recommended, by all means.
Olga Micińska (DAI, 2018) will launch Amanda, inspired by the Tradeswomen, a magazine for women in blue-collar work published in the 80's and 90's in the United States. Amanda discusses matters of technology and industry from a feminist (not only female) perspective. The first issue contains fiction stories of an emancipatory character, citing trade associations, oil industry in Iran and ghosts of the printer feeders. During the event at Framer Framed in Amsterdam, there will be an elaboration on the idea behind the publication. A fragment of story Frances's Threads by Samantha McCulloch (DAI, 2019) will be read and the legacy of the Tradeswomen magazine will be honored. November 10, 2022 at 19:00.
Urak dakar (Water carries) is the new edition of our partner Bulegoa z/b's programme Space is the Place / The Place is Space.

The encounters are comprised of a series of talks and performances that will take place on 18-19 November at Bizkaia Aretoa-UPV/EHU. A film programme hosted by the Zinebi 64 film festival will be presented on 16 November at the Auditorium of the Guggenheim Bilbao Museum. Among the artists and speakers you will encounter many friends and guests of DAI: Kodwo Eshun & Louis Henderson, Denise Ferreira da Silva, Sara Alberani, Itziar Okaritz and last, but not least our amazing alumni Sofia Montenegro (DAI, 2019) and Giulia Crispiani (DAI, 2017).
