Abstract or Description

In this session, a group of artists, writers and curators will read from their work building and exploring speculative, liquid worlds.

The series of readings will be followed by a short conversation addressing different approaches to the notion of liquidity as a methodology or process of sensory and the extra-sensory, and as a speculative space of world-building and undoing.

Ayesha Hameed, Songs for Petals

Ayesha Hameed’s newly published cycle of poems Songs for Petals (L’Internationale Online 2020) reflects on the protests against the Citizenship Amendment Act in India and its prehistories. Reading from the text, she’ll be thinking through the relation between the oceanic, violence, history and protest, and the continuities/discontinuities between her previous project Black Atlantis and this new work.
