12th Berlin Biennale for Contemporary Art

Lecture: Siraj Ahmed. Political Consciousness of the Peripheries

Lecture within the framework of the conference Whose Universal? as part of the 12th Berlin Biennale for Contemporary Art on July 3, 2022 at Akademie der Künste, Hanseatenweg.

This paper moves from Hannah Arendt to the hunger strike, from The Origins of Totalitarianism to the global periphery, in an effort to understand the radically different meanings Western ideals like liberation and sovereignty now assume in the peripheries.
