Future(s) of Cohabitation
Manifesta Journal in collaboration with Tate Modern
5 April 2014
To celebrate the release of the Manifesta Journal 17 Future(s) of Cohabitation edited by Nataša Petrešin-Bachelez (Chief Editor), Virginie Bobin (Associate Editor) and Bisi Silva (MJ#17 Guest Editor), Manifesta Journal, in partnership with Tate Modern, will host a panel discussion and seminar.
This panel discussion and seminar draws from the latest issue of Manifesta Journal, which thinks through our contemporary global condition, through destabilizing narratives of origin, rootedness, authenticity and identarian politics. Panelists will critically assess and re-position the legacy of concepts such as “hybridity” or “hyphenated identities” and their contemporary relevance in the field of arts and humanities. Speakers include Kapwani Kiwanga with her investigation of Afrofuturism, theorist Fatima El-Tayeb and curator Elvira Dyangasi Ose. Through presentations and a panel discussion, this event hopes to open up visions, possibilities and realities for dynamic, potential and imagined futures to co-inhabit across space.
