The Film & Media Department will be hosting Raphael Fonseca, one of the curators of this year's Videobrasil Biennale, for a workshop and presentation/screening.

This workshop discusses possibilities of curating in a transhistorical perspective, focusing on artists and spaces from the Global South. How can curators generate friction between this South and the hegemonic North? How to create conversations between artists, images, and institutions that are separated not only historically but also geographically, as seen under the prism of a "Global South"? The activity is underpinned on the discussion of a series of moving image works. After exploring these works collectively, participants will receive one of them to use as the basis for a fictional curatorial program that creates connections between images distant from each other in time. In a week's time, participant will present their programs to the group. The workshop is meant to be an engaging - and, of course, fun - experience to explore our ability to create relations, propose projects, respond to specific artworks, and deal creatively with emerging cultural conditions.
