Blind Spots is a half-day event of presentations and discussion, accompanied by a film screening of Ruben Östlund’s 2011 Play. The programme will include presentations from four discussants; artist Loulou Cherinet (Sweden/Ethiopia), curators Nana Adusei-Poku (Netherlands) and Power Ekroth (Norway/Germany), and art historian Eddie Chambers (UK).
The event will focus on curatorial and artistic interventions into different kinds of archives; asking how the creation or maintenance of archives reflect national interests and place-making; and with a particular emphasis on projects that have sought to address racial inequalities, exclusions, grand narratives and myth-making in the visual arts. Focusing on the Nordic region and Scotland, the programme will have a particular focus on the manifestation of whiteness in northern artistic cities, drawing parallels between Stockholm, Oslo and Glasgow.
Translated excerpts of writer Oivvio Polite’s White Like Me: Selected Texts on Racism (Danger Bay Press, Stockholm, 2007) have been translated into English specifically for this event, and will be freely distributed for all audience members.
1pm – 3.30pm: Introduction, and screening of Ruben Östlund’s Play.
4pm – 7pm: Presentations from Loulou Cherinet, Nana Adusei-Poku, Power Ekroth and Eddie Chambers, followed by Q&A (with break).
The Curating Europes’ Futures series explores through discussion contemporary curatorial and artistic practices that have critically addressed processes of socio-economic restructuring, identity politics, gender dynamics, and cultural governance within ‘post-bloc’ Europe.
Curating Europes’ Futures brings together the Creative Futures Institute (University of the West of Scotland), Glasgow School of Art, the practitioner-research networks of Variant, Framework and Mother Tongue, Caroline Gausden, Arianna Introna and Dr Susannah Thompson. The series is hosted by CCA Glasgow. www.curatingeuropesfutures.net
