The Single Screen, Block 43 Malan Road

As cultural workers and artists, how can we work with or within institutions at a time of violent racialization and profound ecological crisis? From the point of view of a cultural worker based in Global North countries whose governments cause and contribute to inhuman civil wars and drone strikes in other regions of the world forcing thousands of people into displacement, Nataša Petrešin-Bachelez will discuss the necessity to engage various art institutional constituencies through curatorial practice. Showing how her curatorial projects, developed in specific locales, engage with a wider geopolitical reality, Petrešin-Bachelez will address the necessity to slow down one’s way of working and being, to imagine new ecologies of care as a continuous practice of support, and to listen with attention to feelings that arise from encounters with objects and subjects. For this talk, she will focus on her latest project, the recently opened Contour Biennale 9: Coltan as Cotton (11 January – 20 October 2019, Mechelen, Belgium), to talk about the possibility of opening up institutional borders and render them more palpable, audible, sentient, soft, porous and, most of all, decolonial and anti-patriarchal.
