An afternoon of screenings and discussions curated by writer and curator Shama Khanna exploring the use and misuse of theorist Edouard Glissant’s notion of opacity. The event takes its starting point from Glissant’s quote from Poetics of Relation: “It is not necessary to try to become the other (to become other) nor to ‘make’ him in my image.” Confirmed participants include: Rizvana Bradley, Lucy Clout, Evan Ifekoya, James N. Kienitz Wilkins, and Rehana Zaman. Shama Khanna was a Writer in Residence at Jerwood Visual Arts in 2014.

This event is free to attend but booking is required via Eventbrite.
