Private screening with Luiza Folegatti, Marzia Jamili/Brittany Nugent, Solomon Mekonen and Laura Na
This screening program is curated by new Visual Anthropology graduates from the Freie Universität. The MA program especially raises questions about problems in representation of culture, what global digitalization means for cultures and societies and the significance of ethnographic films and photography for Social and Cultural Anthropology.
What should be the primacy of an ethical response from visual media and research in a time where everything is in flux, where demagogues take center stage and the role of the media is undoubtedly problematic. Visual Anthropology can serve as a proposition for not only documenting the world and depicting lived experience, but for modelling and envision futures and raising new questions. Self-reflexivity and collaborative methods lie in the core of the field, and the films are interwoven by these approaches in four hybrid pieces, that brings subjects like gender, performativity, belonging, racialized identity and decolonization to the forefront.
Please note this is a private screening, which requires a personal invitation. Please contact us for more information.
