Tuesday 2 July, 6:30pm to 7:30pm.
IMMA is delighted to invite you to a talk by Dr Catherine Gander, an expert in documentary aesthetics and artistic forms of resistance, who explores how, in Doris Salcedo’s artworks, the traumas of displacement take physical form.
Tracing the political, personal, and poetic meanings of the term displacement, Dr Gander widens the discussion to include other artists and poets whose work also engages with documentary practices to (re)present ongoing traumatic histories.
Dr Gander considers how, in confronting the corporeal conditions of dislocation, erasure and precarity, art can re-figure displacement as a position of political and cultural resistance.
