On Violence

#2: With Stefano Harney, Fred Moten

Part of “On Violence”


English / approx. 90 mins.

On Violence Über Gewalt

Is the explicit representation of violence in anti-colonial theory and in the critique of racism revictimizing? What form of visibility is hidden in colonial and industrial logistics and in neocolonial and neoliberal structures? In their works, authors Stefano Harney and Fred Moten address questions about forms of violence both implicitly and explicitly.
In the second edition of the series “On Violence”, an online lecture for thematic introduction will again be followed by a live discussion at HAU.
Fred Moten will be joining via video.
