A Little Too Close? Talk by Temi Odumosu

20:00 - 21:00

SAVVY Contemporary
Plantagenstraße 31, 13347 Berlin, Germany


WITH Temi Odumosu

Colonial Neighbours and the ‘Affect and Colonialism Workshop’ at the Freie Universität’s Affective Societies Research Center are inviting you to an evening of critical (re)visiting of colonial archives with Dr. Temi Odumosu.

The lecture draws on her experiences of over 15 years spent embroiled in affectively charged archives documenting slavery and colonialism, and asks the question: What are the consequences of disturbing the dead? She will also describe her evolving research practice, making necessary space for the emotive dimensions of memory work, by exploring some experimental productions created as a part of the Living Archives Research Project.

Her talk will be followed by a special on-site visit to the current display of the Colonial Neighbours archive and collaborations––featuring a roundtable discussion with the Colonial Neighbours team about the affective life of the colonial fragments, tales, and objects collected in our archive.

TEMI ODUMOSU is an art historian and curator at Malmö University in Sweden. Her international research and curatorial practice is concerned with the visual and affective politics of slavery and colonialism, Afro-Diaspora aesthetics, decolonial praxis, archival re-enactment(s), critical use of locative media technologies (AR/MR), and more broadly exploring how art mediates social transformation and healing. Recent curative interventions in Scandinavia include What Lies Unspoken: Sounding the colonial archive (National Gallery & Royal Library of Denmark, 2017-2018); Milk & Honey(Botkyrka Konsthall, Sweden, 2017); and Possession: Art, Power & Black Womanhood (New Shelter Plan, Denmark, 2014). Her historical monograph Africans in English Caricature 1769-1819: Black Jokes, White Humour is published by Brepols (2017). Her research is currently funded by the Riksbanken Jubileumsfond in the School of Arts and Communication, at Malmö University.

The Affect and Colonialism Workshop is a special series of events organized by Dr. Tamar Blickstein, an anthropologist and postdoctoral researcher at the Affective Societies Research Center at the Freie Universität — Berlin (SFB1171). The Workshop provides a forum for interdisciplinary research and reflection about the enduring affective life of colonialism, the racialized politics that sustain it, and the affective interstices of its unmaking.
