On April 17th the research group Art & Spatial Praxis will be launching 𝙋𝙡𝙤𝙩(𝙩𝙞𝙣𝙜). This multimedia online platform aims to explore Sylvia Wynter’s concept of the plot. Envisioned as a space of subversion and unsettling, the platform counters restrictive dominant narratives within colonial and extractivist contexts.

The publication will feature contributions from a range of scholars and artists, including Taylor le Melle, Flavia Pinheiro, Giulia Damiani, Francisca Khamis, Neeltje ten Westenend, Mariana Balvanera, Patricia de Vries, Amelia Groom, Hanneke Stuit, and Liza Prins. Each contributor brings their unique perspective and expertise to explore spatial and cultural narratives.

The launch on April 17th will be in FL101 from 15.00 until 19.00 with catering by Radical Roots in the Sandberg kitchen afterwards. The event will include performative, poetic and read contributions by meLê yamomo, S*an D. Henry Smith, Francisca Khamis Giacoman, and Derica Shields.

The online platform is built and designed by Maisa Imamović and enriched with video renderings of performative practices created by Yana Khazanovich.

This project is made possible through the generous support of CoECI and in collaboration with the Institute of Network Cultures.
