BE.BOP 2018

BE.BOP and and the Decolonial Summer School Middelburg as Partner Healing Platforms

With Patricia Kaersenhout, Alanna Lockward, Walter Mignolo, Rolando Vázquez, Elena Quintarelli
Moderation Quinsy Gario

A group of artists, scholars and activists will think and discuss through various forms of healing and un-doing. Central concerns are decolonization processes of Contemporary Art or successful interventions in epistemologies that continue to reinforce colonial modernity. Be.Bop and the Decolonial Summer School Middelburg serve as role models on de-linking from the colonial matrix of power, while reinforcing educational infrastructures that imagine and enable decoloniality in Europe.


The panel is part of the congress BE.BOP 2018 Black Europe Body Politics. A project of Art Labour Archives in cooperation with Studio Я / Maxim Gorki Theater and Autograph ABP (London) curated by Alanna Lockward. Supported by Bundeszentrale für politische Bildung/bpb and ifa-Galerie Berlin (Institut für Auslandsbeziehungen) with friendly support by Danish Arts Foundation, Savvy Contemporary, Humboldt University Berlin, London College of Communication: University of the Arts London, King's College London and Tate Britain.
