Who is speaking? Representation and non-representation in (art) politics today
20:30: Conversation between Paola Bacchetta and Françoise Vergès (Cirque)
In the framework of the programme of L’Internationale Dialogues*, the political scientist Françoise Vergès and feminist, queer scholar and sociologist Paola Bacchetta will be engaged in a conversation about who has the right to speak in our societies. They will address this question through looking into their personal and professional paths, and decolonization movements within feminist history and theory.
*Over the past four years, L’Internationale and its partners have worked in the current unstable geopolitical and ecological constellation to activate the values of culture and international collaboration. What specific contribution can museums and cultural institutions offer to counter the plural crisis of today’s fragmented globalised society? How can specificity, research, dialogue and difference be constructively activated in the institutions of culture to build lasting friendships between communities? This spring, The Uses of Art programme culminates in a series of simultaneous activities, linked through L’Internationale Dialogues: a rich programme of engaged professional dialogues. This programme is launched with a full day of live broadcasts of discussions, performances, and live tours through the new exhibitions, on 27 April, via L’Internationale Online.
The conversation will be held in English.
After the event we invite you for a small drink.
This event is organized in collaboration with KASKcinema and is part ofShow Me Your Archive and I Will Tell You Who is in Power.
