On the occasion of Afterall Journal’s issue 47 launch in Toronto, featured artist Naeem Mohaiemen and editor Charles Stankievech will discuss the role of archiving unfinished histories, listening to subjective testimonies, and presenting aesthetics of evidence in order to question hegemonic narratives that have historically been one-sided and exclusionary. Afterall is a Research Centre of University of the Arts London, located at Central Saint Martins. The journal is published in partnership with John H. Daniels Faculty of Architecture, Landscape and Design, University of Toronto; M HKA, Antwerp; NTU Centre for Contemporary Art Singapore; and in association with the University of Chicago Press.
Naeem Mohaiemen combines films, installations, and essays to research former utopias and incomplete decolonizations – framed by Third World Internationalism and World Socialism. He co-edited (w/ Lorenzo Fusi) System Error: War is a Force That Gives Us Meaning (Papesse, 2006) and is currently co-editing (w/ Eszter Szakacs) Solidarity Must be Defended (Tranzit/ Van Abbe/ Salt/ Tricontinential, 2019). His work has recently shown at SALT (Istanbul, 2019), MoMA PS1 (NYC, 2018), and documenta 14 (Athens/Kassel, 2017). Charles Stankievech is an artist, the Director of Visual Studies in the Daniels Faculty at the University of Toronto, and a contributing editor of Afterall Journal. Their talk is hosted by the Master of Visual Studies Proseminar at the John H. Daniels Faculty of Architecture, Landscape and Design at the University of Toronto.
