Lecture-performance

This lecture-performance follows up on the assumptions and subjectivities assembled with artist and BAK 2017–2018 Fellow Ola Hassanain’s project Back and Forth (2016–ongoing).

The project has raised questions about how we can re-articulate the space of collectives of gender to speak to policies under particular modes of power, and how these political dialogues can then push for a transition from private to public. This lecture-performance is a point of transmission, through performative gestures, of a mode of political dialogue from Khartoum.
