Abstract or Description

The Franklin Humanities Institute’s Climate Change, Decolonization, and Global Blackness Lab presents a screening of two video works, Infinity Minus Infinity (The Otolith Group, 2019, 57 min, UK, Digital) and In the Year of the Quiet Sun (The Otolith Group, 2013, 34 min, UK, Digital) followed by a staged conversation between the artists and Professor Denise Ferreira da Silva (Univ. of British Columbia). The presented works and staged conversation aims to interweave The Otolith Group’s practice in relation to the critical themes of the FHI Lab, analyzing ongoing climate catastrophe through the context of empire and the forms of racialization central to global capitalism, which includes the degradation of peoples, ecosystems and lands facilitated by states in the global North.
