Can the Token Speak? Towards a Theory & Strategy of the Trojan Token

May 1, 2016
3:40pm  -  3:55pm
High Bay Gallery, Great Hall — Level 2

Can the token speak? The trojan token (often using tools of neo-venture-capitalist thinking) subverts institutional tokenism by inhabiting the cracks in its logic and use these sites as strategic locales to act from. In this session, Nine Yamamoto-Masson would present her “theory of the token”. Then, by comparing notes across categories of difference, participants would delineate practical strategies of the resistant Trojan Token that may be put to use as an emancipatory strategy towards becoming – and staying – a speaking active participating subject within the centers of power.
