1968: The Fire of Ideas

Lecture by Marcelo Brodsky Artist Marcelo Brodsky will discuss his recent artwork, 1968: The Fire of Ideas, a visual essay using archive material from the social movements of 1968. 1968 was the year the youth from around the world took to the streets to demand greater freedom and a more active participation in the political life and decision-making of their societies. Quite often these demands were met with violent State repression. To recapture the spirit of those times, Marcelo Brodsky researched various photography collections and visual archives around the world for three years. These photographs evoke the events in an emotional way. They contain details, stories, and reflections that make it possible to read and understand the demands of each time and place. Brodsky’s visual essay is complemented by his intervention on the photographs with colour, drawing, or text. Specific details of the context and circumstances are brought out, underlining the effervescence of the call for change. Marcelo Brodsky is a conceptual artist and Human Rights activist who uses photography to intervene in the ongoing debate …

We will not give you the satisfaction…

We will not give you the satisfaction… is a postscript on the project WHERE WE’RE AT! Other voices on gender curated by Christine Eyene at BOZAR, Brussels in 2014. Conceived as an illustrated lecture/essay-in-progress, it proposes to revisit the route that has led to an interest in the representation of the black body in art and gendered expressions, particularly female and queer. Poised between African women’s narratives and the Black British context, from lived experience to theory and art practice, the presentation will address discourses and aesthetic strategies within politics of representation. It will also take a critical stance on the commodification of the body in some strands of socio-politically oriented art, while seeking out ways to complexify an engagement with gender politics in art through non-object-based practices. Presence, voice, sound, noise will therefore be key features in this presentation. This essay-in-progress is part of a preliminary research for a UK touring exhibition on women and sound art currently developed for 2017.
