Black Europe Body Politics
Coalitions Facing White Innocence
Performance, Activism and Afropean Decoloniality
BE.BOP 2018 engages collectively in undoing the asymmetries of knowledge brought about by colonialism. Basis will be the work of Caribbean Diaspora thinker Gloria Wekker. Combining panel discussions, performances, video art and book presentations, the congress empowers those silenced by hegemonic historical narratives and opens Black Europe to oceans of humanity.
