Looking into questions such as democracy, rights, the legacy of colonialism, historiography, suppressed narratives, and politically contested issues such as the limits of freedom of speech and the recent refugee crisis, the seminar will examine problems of representation and methodological strategies in relation to curating the political from a critical, research and process-based perspective.
This module, aimed at artists, curators, researchers and so forth, will also look into the ethics of socially and politically engaged practice, the different ways how research translates into artistic praxis and visuality, as well as how this content is organized and mediated curatorially. Katerina Gregos has invited two guests, artists Johan Grimonprez and Adelita Husni-Bey to contribute to the workshop. Grimonprez brings his own special perspective into research, film and politics while Husni-Bey will provide a perspective stemming from radical pedagogy and performativity.
