Don't miss this live screening of The Otolith Group 's celebrated recent film INFINITY Minus Infinity (2019) + discussion with Denise Ferreira da Silva. The Otholith Group consists of Anjalika Sagar and Kodwo Eshun (who recently returned to DAI as a guest at our COOP, Curating Positions). March 18, 2021 | 1:00pm to 3:00pm EST
The Dramaturgies of Resistance event series continues with a live screening of The Otolith Group's celebrated recent film INFINITY Minus Infinity (2019), followed by a discussion between Otolith (artists Kodwo Eshun and Anjalika Sagar) and Denise Ferreira da Silva (University of British Columbia), whose formulation of an "Equation of Value" centrally informs the film's “aesthetic imagination of blackness as that which holds and hosts the capacity to disrupt life” (The Otolith Group, 2020).
Please register only if you intend to attend the Webinar, which will allow participants to ask questions during the final Q&A. As with the Hito Steyerl lecture, the organisers will also livestream the event through the Facebook event for maximal accessibility — follow the @DramaturgiesofResistance Facebook page for regular updates, or check www.dramaturgiesofresistance.com for a link to the livestream at the event time.(Note that viewing Facebook Live streams does not require a Facebook account.)
Dramaturgies of Resistance: collectivity, performance, dialectics is a Jackman Humanities Institute (JHI Program for the Arts) funded event series.
