In light of recent events, the screening has been cancelled.
In light of recent events, it is not possible for Jewish-Palestinian professor Ariella Aïsha Azoulay to come to Brussels. Therefore, after careful deliberation with Travelling Sources' curators Hari Prasad Sacré, Arshia Ali Azmat & Hoda Siahtiri, we have decided to cancel the three-day festival.
The film engages with stolen art to question the imperial foundations of the world we live in. Narrating the destruction of the Jewish Muslim world in North-Africa through imperial technologies of colonizing, partitioning, mining, stealing, archiving, and exhibiting, Azoulay invites us to reclaim the world of skills, care for the world enshrined in stolen objects, and inhabit ruined worlds we are being told could no longer exist.
Following the film screening an after talk between Ariella Azoulay and Nadia Fadil will be moderated by Laura Gaelle Ganza.
19:00-20:00 Film Screening The world like a jewel in the hand
20:00-21:15 After talk between Ariella Azoulay and Nadia Fadil, moderated by Laura Gaelle Ganza
This event is curated by Hari Prasad Sacré, Arshia Ali Azmat & Hoda Siahtiri in collaboration with Kaaitheater, VUB Crosstalks, Brussels Research Centre on Innovation in Learning & Diversity and Cinema Palace, with the support of Sint-Lucas Antwerp, Constant vzw and VUB - Global Minds program.
Part of Travelling Sources, a three day Art & Reflection festival featuring the work of a professor whose academic work extends into artistic and cultural critique.
Ariella Aïsha Azoulay is an author, curator of anti-colonial archives, film essayist, and theorist of empires and its various technologies (from partition to photography). She is Professor of Modern Culture and Media and the Department of Comparative Literature at Brown University. Her work centers around unlearning imperial histories, engaging with archives to generate anti-colonial knowledge and generate potential histories.
Nadia Fadil works as an Associate Professor at the Department of Social and Cultural Anthropology at KU Leuven. Her research centres on Islam in Europe (taking Brussels as an ethnographic site), which she examines both as a living tradition as well as an object of regulation. She draws on this empirical question to reflect on a vast set of theoretical issues such as subjectivity and power, ethical selfhood, the body, postcoloniality, governmentality, race and secularism.
Laura Gaëlle Ganza is a socio-cultural worker convinced of the transformative power of art and culture. Her work in non-profit organisations focuses on decolonisation issues in the cultural sector as well as the "development aid" sector.
