Bouchra Khalili:
Calling the Ghosts: On a Few Recent Works

  • Wed, January 22, 2020 | 6:30 p.m.
  • Reid Hall | 4, rue de Chevreuse, 75006 Paris
  • Free and open to the public

Committed to deep research, Khalili develops her collaborative projects across long periods of time. When considered as a whole, the body of work she has created in the last two decades can be seen as a meditation on unconditional and radical equality. For this lecture, she will share and articulate some of her works in order to address the essential questions that her practice investigates: the politics of memory of anti-colonial struggles and international solidarity; forced illegal migrations in relation to imperial and colonial continuums; egalitarian forms of citizenship as opposed to the nation-state model of citizenry; and language, dialects, speech acts, and agency.
