A collaboration with HEKLER Assembly Reading Group. alea adigweme, manuel arturo abreu and the CAS team host the conversation, bringing the following questions for the Assembly: How do we make space for Land and People with complicated histories to "speak"? How do we decolonize understanding and shaping of self, time, and the future we co-create?
The reading group was led by artists alea adigweme & manuel arturo abreu who shared their practices, selected readings and led the conversation focusing on decolonial reading strategies of dominant and personal histories, post-slavery stereotypical representation of blackness and intimacy of witnessing black death.
HEKLER ASSEMBLY is a transnational space for cultural workers to share, discuss and collectively imagine new ways of instituting based on the principles of self-organizing, community care, critical thinking, political education, and healing as commons.
