Aftereffects and Untold Histories, Politics and Spaces of Performance since the 1990s
15 April 2021
My keynote at the conference 'Aftereffects and Untold Histories, Politics and Spaces of Performance since the 1990s'.
Aftereffects and Untold Histories, Politics and Spaces of Performance since the 1990s is a research project and five-week online events programme running from 15th April to 15th May 2021, commissioned by the National College of Art and Design (NCAD).
The Aftereffects and Untold Histories programme of discussions, conversations and performances will examine the intersections of politics and performance in Europe in the 1990s as well as their legacies today.
The Aftereffects and Untold Histories programme is a partnership between NCAD, the Irish Museum of Modern Art (IMMA) and the National Irish Visual Arts Library (NIVAL). Aftereffects and Untold Histories is part of NCAD’s contribution to the EU funded L’Internationale project Our Many Europes. L’Internationale is a network of major museums and education partners. It represents a new internationalist model and defends a concept of common heritage that is based on interconnected archives and collections. Ultimately, L’Internationale challenges the way globalising art institutions replicate the structures of multinational powers and the streamlined, centralised distribution of knowledge.
