A Neighborhood Festival about Migration

13:00 18-09-2016

Scholar Françoise Vergès works and lives in Paris, France. She has published extensively on postcolonial theory, migration politics, creolization, slavery and the economy of predation as well as the anti-colonial thinkers Frantz Fanon and Aimé Césaire. She has also directed two movies on the Caribbean authors Aimé Césaire and Maryse Condé and organized a number of exhibitions at the Louvre on slavery and women.

During Sorry We’re Open Vergès will present a lecture on Muslim women and men in the cities of Europe: how they are policed and how they answer, and about the criminalization of the Black body in society.

Poetic Biographies

Thursday September 22

Poetic Biographies is a music induced poetry and performance evening that connects personal anecdotes, political fictions, and the popular cultures of migration(s).

Special guest of this program is music producer and DJ Nkisi, who will also speak about NON, a collective of African artists, and of the diaspora, using sound as their primary media, to articulate the visible and invisible structures that create binaries in society, and in turn distribute power.
