Dit is een online event


On April 29, Creative Coding Utrecht and IMPAKT present the screening of Same Sex Biz and Sugar Walls Teardom by Tabita Rezaire. The video works guide us through cyberspace, showing how it forms a space of connection and healing as well as one of institutionalized exploitation and exclusion. In this event, we will discuss the complex politics and histories of technology in conversation with Camille Barton. As an interdisciplinary artist, educator and embodiment researcher, Camille uses afrofuturism to imagine creative interventions towards systemic change.

How are structures of racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, ableism, classism, colonialism and the exploitation of natural resources (re)produced in online environments and technology? How can we practice care and healing in cyberspace?

Guided by Rezaire’s work, this event traces connections between technologies, bodies, communities and ecologies. We will discuss questions such as: How has the development of technology been marked by structures of exclusion and exploitation? How can we unlearn dominant binary, Western-centric and exclusionary ways of thinking about bodies, identities and technologies? How can cyberspace be used for education and healing?

Our speaker Camille Barton is the head of Ecologies of Transformation (2021 - 2023), a temporary masters programme at Sandberg Institute. In their work, Barton is invested in breaking down the mind body separation that is dominant in Western paradigms in order to create more space for flexible thinking, holistic healing and bridging across differences.

The event will be hosted by Rosa Wevers. She is PhD candidate in Gender studies at Utrecht University. Currently, she investigates art exhibitions and artistic practices that critically respond to surveillance, and shape tactics of resisting control. Previously, Rosa worked as the project coordinator of MOED (Museum of Equality and Difference). Rosa is the co-host and co-producer of Kunstmatig, a podcast on the intersections of art and technology.
