BLACKNESS & THE POSTMODERN LAUNCH

Could self-reflection through being 'barely human' offer us a valuable lesson on humanity itself?

18:30-19:45
A very pink elephant in a rather white room (in English)
Shubhangi Singh, Visual Artist and a Masters student at Aalto University, and Maïmouna Jagne-Soreau, a PhD candidate, examine the matters of colour that resides in the narrow and, often unpopular passages amongst the existing larger discourse around race. Exploring local tools and vocabulary in order to approach issues of racialization, colourism and ethnic belonging, beyond a generalised hatred towards the esoteric "white man".
