The Geography of Hate | Performance & Exhibition Walk-Through
April 8, 2021 19:00 p.m. - 20:00
Hate is an entity that spreads like a wildfire. An entity that creates "the Other". It becomes the prime lens through which the other is read and dehumanized. Hate exists as an emotion that brings communities or groups together questioning expressions such as empathy, love and care. In the collective act of the world making it plays an important role by almost becoming an economy. In its most obtrusive expression, hate is violent, working as an apparatus of desolation.
The Geography of Hate by Artist-Activist Sujatro Ghosh questions hate as a tool for systematic violence and otherization. Through collective expressions, he explores the fundamental anatomy of hate as an entity of subjugation. The project tackles questions such as: 'How is this Other created and why do certain hate attach to this other and slides over the rest?' 'How and why is violence the ultimate materialization of hate?'
The project's exhibition which includes a showcase of objects, performance videos, a documentary, and an immersive projection work was curated by Arijit Bhattacharyya (Artist, Curator and Activist) and Sujatro Ghosh. It will be on show in Oyoun's tower from the start of the EMBODIED ARTS FESTIVAL for two months. Information about how to visit in person will be available soon.
Join us online for this event on the 8th. Two performances - by Farah Deen and Karen Cheng and by Fatmanur Sahin and Team - will be streamed from Oyoun's main stage and then there will be a digital walk-through of the exhibition. The walk-through will be led by Sujatro Ghosh.
This performance and exhibition walk-through event will be streamed on Oyoun's Vimeo, YouTube and Facebook channels. Direct links will follow!
