Assembling and Reassembling: Decolonizing the (media) archive

April 23, 2017
3:00pm  -  4:00pm
GBU Gallery, 5th Floor, AEH
In an effort to reimagine the archive, artists Alejandro T. Acierto and Oli Rodriguez are trying to remake it. By assembling and reassembling the media archive to speculate new possibilities and other histories, we can begin to decolonize the images and ephemera from which colonialist discourses are built. Looking historically to re-invent the present, this conversation focuses on what we can begin to do and what strategies we can engage so as to empower the historically marginalized.
