Artist Talk


Artist Talk with Grada Kilomba and Diana McCarty

Often caught between discourses of integration and opposition, we repeatedly dismiss the importance of desire. In this conversation Grada Kilomba and Diana McCarty will address the concept of desire in the post-colonial context, and the urgency of creating new artistic languages that distance themselves from the norms of dominant narratives.

The talk will be in English.
