Seminar with Prof. Madina Tlostanova

Prof. Madina Tlostanova, Linköping University, Department of thematic Studies, TEMAG: Decolonizing knowledge, being and sensing: Caucasian resistance and re-existence.
We will focus on the trajectories of  Caucasian identities, sensibilities and subjectivities  in modernity/coloniality – Russian/Soviet/post-Soviet/global (neo)liberal. Starting and departing from the core decolonial concepts such as coloniality of being, of knowledge, of gender, of sensing, the geopolitics and corpo-politics of knowledge, the decolonial aesthesis, and re-existence, we will reflect on how they  are rethought and remade in art and/as activism of the contemporary Caucasus (and particularly in the works of Dagestani artist Taus Makhacheva and Chechen artist Aslan Gaisumov), and what is the potential liberating role of art and artivism in decolonization of knowledge, being, sensing and gender in the Caucasus.
When: March 13, 15.15–17.00
