A Zoom link will be provided closer to the event date.
Ariella Aïsha Azoulay’s new book, Potential History: Unlearning Imperialism, separates each chapter with a set of prompts or invitations: “Imagine going on strike!” These prompts— addressed to museum workers, photographers, historians, and the governed—are tools in the larger project of unlearning imperialism, beginning with the multiple ways in which we all participate in imperial violence in our various roles and locations. In the distinguished event of 2020-21, Ariella Azoulay will enter into conversation with Razan alSalah and Krista Lynes of the Feminist Media Studio, in order to understand striking as a pedagogical, political and aesthetic method for unlearning and resisting imperial violence. We will centre our discussion on striking in an effort to devise concrete commitments, calls to action, or protocols for unlearning imperialism, divesting, and/or decolonizing the Feminist Media Studio and the larger institutional structures and communities in which it participates.
