Antiracist Curatorial Practice

Book presentation and talk by Natalie Bayer and Nuray Demir
1h 25'32"

The anthology reflects upon museums and exhibitions from the perspective of postcolonial museology and critical migration and regime research. Beyond critical analysis, this collection of texts is about collecting strategies and forms of action that make it possible to think of curating as anti-racist practice. Using as springboards the intersections between social battlefields and curatorial practices, as well as a focus on agency, this book examines the relationality of struggles for and against representation. Therefore, the focus is on discursive strategies of resistance, contact zones and approaches to re-appropriation. The publication contains contributions from theory, art and activism to new perspectives of the art and culture industry, which refer to transnational approaches, counter narratives and alternative forms of action.

Elsa M`bala: Sequence

Performance
33'20"


Sequence is a project initiated by Elsa M’bala for the ifa-Galerie Berlin. Together with visual jokey Zoey Vero the two artists are planning an ode to female livelihood on this international day of the woman. From the beginning of creation until today, ranging from motherhood to divine female energy present in each one of us, M’bala will sonically explore the possibilities for freedom in this ancestral knowledge. Throughout generations and cultures women have been the leading powers towards change and social justice. During the evening, the words and voices of different female social leaders will be looped and transformed into musical pieces, accompanied by powerful visuals. The evening will begin and close with M’bala’s previous radio works.
The healing powers of female*hood is to be celebrated.

What does it take to cross a border?
On borders, bodies, and performance

21.2.2019 — 24.2.2019

ifa-Galerie Berlin

The ifa-Galerie Berlin presents a four-day event programme addressing the experience of borders from the perspective of bodies. Through a series of performances, original artistic contributions and workshops, a group of international artists will ask participants to examine how borders are created, engendered and negotiated by physical, choreographic and sensory strategies and processes, but also how we can understand and redefine them through physical experience. The programme will be complemented by talks and conversational formats.

Hudud

Public presentation

Public presentation by workshop participants, moderated by Omar Berrada and Saba Innab


HUDUD (arab. "borders") is a transdisciplinary art and research programme that brings together young artists, architects and social scientists based in Morocco. HUDUD focuses on mobility beyond mental and territorial borders and takes inspiration from the life and work of the late Fatema Mernissi. A pioneering feminist, she was also a renowned sociologist, a successful novelist and a committed social activist. The programme asks how to think beyond our limitations, and to transgress the symbolic borders between disciplines and methodologies, in order to embrace mobility as a mode of research: the mobility of ideas, memories, imaginaries and forms of representation.

Artist Talk with Abdessamad El Montassir

22.11.2018, 7pm

ifa-Galerie Berlin

Artist Talk

The artist will present and discuss his most recent work Résistance Naturelle for the first time in its complete form. The 17 minute-film aims to open spaces of negotiation, summoning the micro-stories made invisible by official history, and explores their places and stakes in contemporary societies. Abdessamad El Montassir, a native of Boujdour, a location in the Sahara in southwest Morocco, uses this geographical zone as an analytical starting point. He creates reflexive processes that invite viewers to rethink history and mappings through collective narratives and non-material archives. 

The event will take place in …

Jace Clayton: Radical Discounts

Artist Talk
54'54"

What if the radical potential (if any) of music exists not in its performance and consumption, but in how it is or isn’t archived? Jace Clayton (New York), artist and writer, also known as DJ/rupture, will explore this notion using examples that range from Julius Eastman and Lee Lozano’s conceptual hostilities to black radicality under the banner of brand sponsorships.
