ENGAGEMENT, RESISTANCE AND IMAGINATION
Akeel Bilgrami, Prabhat Patnaik, Basel Abbas & Ruanne Abou-Rahme, Michael Wood, Fawwaz Traboulsi
1 November 2013
Through lectures, conversations, and artistic performances, this session will examine how cultures and peoples of the South have resisted imperialism in today's world as well as in the past. A Southern perspective will figure prominently as contributors reflect on practices spanning from knowledge production to the search to redefine emancipatory theories, to the creation of radical new imageries-not least in literature and film, which Said dealt with extensively in his discussion of Late Style.
Friday 1 November at 5pm, Basel Abbas & Ruanne Abou-Rahme
The Incidental Insurgents: The Part about The Bandits
This lecture performance takes up the figure of the bandit in exploring the artist's own position and the common search for a language for the present moment. The imagery created by Abbas and Abou-Rahme aims to broaden the horizon for new ways of becoming and being in the world.
