Who and what is considered “waste(d)” in the current moment? What forms of cleansing are they subjected to? In this workshop the Temporary Academy of Arts (PAT) and fellows from Columbia’s Institute of Ideas and Imagination come together to discuss these questions, develop a lexicon of relevant terms and concepts, and examine people, times, and places that often elude investigation.

Featuring Lynnette Widder, Ersi Sotiropoulos, Sky Macklay, Mila Turajlić, Elpida Karaba, Despina Zefkili, Yota Ioannidou, and Vangelis Vlahos, this event is organized in collaboration with the The Stavros Niarchos Foundation Public Humanities Initiative, the Temporary Academy of Arts, and the University Seminar in Modern Greek.
