Image, Narrative Knowledge & Postcolonial Condition

Image, Narrative Knowledge & Postcolonial Condition

25/05/2018 van 10:00 tot 17:15

Argos, Centrum voor kunst en media, Werfstraat 13, 1000 Brussel

The postcolonial condition questions how we create knowledge, stories and images of the other. These stories and images reveal more about the knowing subject than about the object of knowledge. From a postcolonial perspective, this has not only epistemological but also ethical and political relevance.

The postcolonial condition demands that we question our construction of knowledge, stories and images, and that we reveal its structural relation to histories of control and exploitation. More, it urges us to take up the ethical and political challenge of living with the ghosts; giving them back speech in a way that allows them to present themselves.

This seminar is organized by Research Group Interpraxis (St Lucas Antwerpen) and held in the context of the exhibition by Bie Michels and Marie Voignier, 'Dialoguing Gazes', 13 May - 15 July, ARGOS
