RITES OF RETURN – POLITICS OF MEMORY AND DIASPORA — Talk by xerem July 21, 2016 0 News, Post-Archive

Rites of Return
Politics of Memory and Diaspora

Talk with Keith Piper and Roshini Kempadoo, organized by Mónica de Miranda in the scope of her research project POST-ARCHIVE.
This project and talk looks at the archive  as a critical tool to conceptualize the heuristic value of history, heritage and memory in debates on postcolonial discourses. Responses to the colonial archive are a significant current in late 20th and early 21st century culture. In many different contexts and in a range of visual media, artists have critiqued and deconstructed dominant Western myths and stereotypes of identity. The theoretical issues that inform this subject include the relationship between aesthetics and politics, forms of resistance, the structure and operation of cultural stereotypes in visual cultures, questions of cultural agency, the relationship between postcolonialism and feminism, cultural hybridity, and cross-cultural borrowing  and appropriation.

Scientific coordination and organized by Mónica de Miranda
