Lecture within the framework of the conference Whose Universal? on July 2, 2022 at Akademie der Künste, Hanseatenweg.
The absence of commitment to postcolonial and Indigenous perspectives has created a discourse around the Anthropocene that stages an original crisis rather than accentuating the historical continuity of dispossession, catastrophes, and tragedies caused by empire. This talk addresses some epistemological and ontological challenges that this exclusion produces and makes space for voices that acknowledge the need to imagine different futures in order to “see, and do, the present differently” (Alison Kafer, Feminist, Queer, Crip).
Organized by Haus der Kulturen der Welt (HKW) in collaboration with the 12th Berlin Biennale for Contemporary Art
