WORLDING BEYOND RACIAL CAPITALISM
12 November 21 - 14 November 21
BLACK HORIZON’S – WORLDING WITHIN THE RUINS OF RACIAL CAPITALISM
The current students from ADS2 will run a series of collective workshops + activities surrounding the theme of ‘Worlding: Beyond Racial Capitalism’.
Their work is framed from multiple worldviews, exploring the origins of logistical capitalism and racial capitalism whilst unlearning the Western-centric approaches to architecture and the built environment. In 2019/20 ADS2 looked at the violent world-making project of European cartography with the worlding-potentials of black, indigenous and other worldviews. In 2021/22, ADS2 students are building from this work, exploring the theme: Black Horizons – Worlding within the Ruins of Racial Capitalism. Learning from the global south and drawing from black, indigenous and other-than-human epistemologies, the students are creating work that is collaborative, experimentative and perspective-broadening.
Over the course of three days, fragments of works-in-progress and previous ADS 2 graduates’ work will be displayed through immersive multimedia installation, readings and open discussions all to ignite conversations with visitors on the topic of Worlding: Beyond Racial Capitalism.
Guests are invited to get involved with the range of live performances, workshops, and various events happening throughout the weekend.
