How can we assemble accounts of the evasive forms of violence lodged in material pasts and futures in this era of fake news, omnipresent data and affective politics? Who is accountable for the violent afterlives of infrastructures? In a time when many of the established boundaries that structured common understandings of violations and responsibilities, matter and people, increasingly turn out unsettled, we urgently need to explore post-disciplinary and cross-domain methodologies to uncover the politics of violence.
They invite submissions of projects—embryonic or ongoing—that work with the nexus between violence and materiality. They invite both thinkers and doers, artists and scientists, who work with theoretically informed and methodologically innovative projects, to submit introductions to their work in the form of a written synopsis (+/- 300 words) and, if relevant, associated audio-visual materials. They encourage collaborative projects that entail some form of cross-fertilization between art, architecture and anthropology and work with multifaceted approaches and outputs. In the collaborative spirit of the event, they suggest that you should expect some subsequent exchange around your proposal and how it might fit in the event. They will strive to take the discussions of the seminar forward and curate a joint output.
The submission deadline is 15 January 2020
