Symposium: how to think
Institute of Contemporary Arts

Image credit: Theron Schmidt

This gathering aims to address the notion of ‘radical equality’ in an expansive sense – exploring the deep entanglement of contemporary oppressions including racism, sexism and speciesism. Connecting with FRAMES of REPRESENTATION’s theme of spectatorship, participants are invited to cultivate thinking together: to share in a diverse range of experimental practices asking how we might present more ethical alternatives to the paradigm of mastery through new modes of listening, practice and relation. Participants, each of whom will also bring a guest, take in artists, thinkers and healers who are working in ways that challenge dominant hierarchies and systems, and include Jason Aday, Hamja Ahsan, Khairani Barokka, Leah Bassel, Laura Cull Ó Maoilearca, Suzanne Dhaliwal, Sheila Ghelani, Ria Hartley, Alexandrina Hemsley, May Adadol Ingawanij, Astrid Korporaal, Omikemi, Raju Rage, Rajni Shah, Julietta Singh and Andrea Luka Zimmerman. 
The symposium is funded by the Arts & Humanities Research Council’s Leadership Fellowship project Performance Philosophy & Animals: Towards a Radical Equality
