Quinsy Gario, Jeannette Ehlers, Mette Moestrup, Lesley-Ann Brown and Joiri Minaya
Moderated by Alanna Lockward
In this last panel participants will share different approaches from their practices intended to intervene or disturb the status quo and normalized historiographies. Jeannette Ehler’s recent accomplishment to place the monument of an incendiary Caribbean freedom fighter in Copenhagen will be discussed as well as the resonances of collaborative projects empowering artists and cultural agents engaged d in decolonizing aesthetics and knowledge. Joiri Minaya will talk about her work addressing the perpetuation of white innocence in the gendered imaginary of tourism in the Caribbean and beyond.
Free and open to the public.
