After its outstanding debut last year, this new edition of the series “Black Europe Body Politics” is expanding with live performances and an all-day screening commemorating Malcolm X’s birthday. “Decolonizing the ‘Cold’ War” is the first Afropean performance showcase, accompanied by roundtable discussions on the aesthetic legacy of the Black Power movement in the radical imagination of Diaspora artists. Parallel to this, its influence in liberation and decolonization struggles in the Global South during the so-called ‘Cold’ War will be approached from the continuities of coloniality. According to Enrique Dussel, a liberation philosopher and decolonial thinker, this war was never ‘cold’ in the Global South.
This event is curated by Alanna Lockward, for full program see attached pdf.
