Inward Outward Symposium: Critical Archival Engagements with Sounds and Films of Coloniality
The international symposium Inward Outward investigates the status of moving image and sound archives worldwide as they intertwine with questions of coloniality, identity and race.
Archives, assumed to be containers of memory, are vested with a particular power to constitute and define who is and who is not included in (his)stories. We explore what “decolonizing” the archive – within and beyond the walls of established institutions – could offer for the production of new bodies of knowledge.
The symposium offers dedicated sessions focused on investigating coloniality, identity, memory and race. While these themes are broadly explored in the context of sound and moving image collections across geographies, the symposium also emphasises the position of Dutch identity in its various manifestations.
We invite presenters to engage with the topic through different formats – including papers, performative lectures, screenings, artistic interventions, round table meetings, workshops and more.
Registration for the symposium opens the end of October and is free of charge.
