OPEN MIND SESSIONS — Mathieu Kleyebe Abonnenc
A series of talks/performances by academics and practitioners organized by cultural theorist, Christabelle Peters. Each session will be inspired by a single thing – an artwork, a piece of music, a gesture in dance, etc. – and will invite us along on a magical and intellectual journey across time and space, making linkages with the cultures and histories of the African diaspora. The talks are based on the idea that an open mind can see a whole universe in the tiniest object.

The presentation will be in English
Mathieu Kleyebe Abonnenc devotes his focus to the cultural hegemonies upon which the evolution of contemporary societies is based. Through video, photography installations, drawing, or exhibition projects, he explores the principles behind the dominant presence of pre-existing elements and events – notably those linked to imperial history and the colonies of so-called ‘developed’ countries.
