BE.BOP 2018

My (Grand) Mother Made Me White

Lectureperformance von Quinsy Gario
Quinsy Gario investigates the mechanisms with which white identity politics has been able to cloak itself as neutral and objective. Through the prism of the UN designated Decade of People of African Descent, everyday objects and family sayings, Gario proposes means for subverting white identity politics for social change.

The lectureperformance is part of the kongress 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.
