Languages of resistance

Languages of resistance is a series of meetings at the intersection of contemporary art, activism and critical thought, about the possibilities of contemporary forms of resistance.
During the meetings, we will try to examine some of the latest manifestations and connections between racism, Islamophobia, sexism, homophobia and transphobia in the context of the performativity of resistance. The meetings will take the form of roundtable discussions, during which we will look at specific cases and issues concerning affect, corporality, language, art, activism, institutions and their common spaces.
Ewa Majewska will lead the first discussion and we will use Jasbir Puar’s book "Terrorist Assemblages:Homonationalism in Queer Times".
