CARAM Lectures on Anthropology of Art
Mondays 11.30 — 14.30 Room 1.2, Plateau Rozier
In this series of talks, which forms part of the BA Course/Elective Course in African Studies 'Antropologie van Visuele en Materiële Culturen in Africa' (prof. Hugo Deblock), we will focus on a plethora of artforms, from visual and material cultures to performance and drama and film and immaterial culture and art. The list of speakers includes performance artist, critical writer and dramaturg at VIERNULVIER Kopano Maroga, acclaimed visual artist Aimé Mpane, activist and artivist Laura Nsengiyumva, filmmaker and artist Renzo Martens and documentary-filmmaker Rosine Mbakam. The talks will focus on contemporary issues revolving around visual, material, and immaterial cultures and the arts. Theory will be particularly entwined with the artistic practices of makers (and doers) in the public eye and in current public debate.
