GEOGRAPHIES OF IMAGINATION
DIS-OTHERING: BEYOND AFROPOLITAN AND OTHER LABELS
With the political rise of the far right in recent years, the need to find someone else to blame for one's misery and to project one's anxieties onto is brought to focus one again. This practice, known as "othering", is what the project GEOGRAPHIES OF IMAGINATION is aiming to deconstruct in European cultural institutions, where it is also prevalent. The project itself is part of DIS-OTHERING: BEYOND AFROPOLITAN AND OTHER LABELS – a collaboration between BOZAR-Centre for Fine Arts (Brussels), Kulturen in Bewegung (Vienna) and SAVVY Contemporary (Berlin) and has several "dis-othering" events which take place in Berlin, Brussels, Vienna and Warsaw.
GEOGRAPHIES OF IMAGINATION's Berlin chapter, DIS-OTHERING AS A METHOD: LEH ZO, A ME KE NDE ZA (Ngemba for "keep yours and I keep mine") consists of a series of discourses and performances, as well as an exhibition which starts on the 13th of September.
