Beyond Repair is an educational programme that investigates the historical context and conceptual framework for a variety of ruinous spaces to understand their interconnections and resonances while questioning their seeming immutability and naturalisation. It is meant to acknowledge, analyse, and mourn what cannot be repaired, and to reach beyond – towards and within unstable forms and possibilities of survival, tumultuous self-organisation, resistance and commoning. The programme consists of closed sessions as well as public events.

Open Denial of the False Belief of a Disenchanted Modernity through the Testimony of Blackness as Criminality, Presented to the Miserable and Pitiful Free World in Memory of its Error

I wrote about the dancing plague that occurred in the medieval city of Strasbourg during the summer of 1518 as disrupting the rhythm of daily life through rhythm itself. What I found was a structural inscription of a collective resistance that could never have been organised in advance.

The Plantation and the Prison

A figure with a stone head walks through two landscapes. In one, suburban German sidewalks and paths yield, at a distance, quiet views of residential buildings surrounded by barbed wire and guarded gates. In the other, windy Puglian motorways and tomato fields make for a noisier more industrial ramble. What links the plantation and the prison historically and theoretically? This talk will attempt to answer the question.

carte blanche (white marble mistakes)

Tracing lineages of the white marble sculpture from antiquity to the renaissance, we observe white marble’s influence on representations of whiteness, idealized (white, male) bodies, as well as the facilitation of contemporary white supremacist thought. We navigate questions surrounding bodies which sit heroicized in collective consciousness – youthful, heteronormative, cisgender, white – and individual bodies with their capabilities, limitations, sensualities etc. shaped and determined by the subject.

(her) vision must be protected

An American in Athens. A Persian demon. A German faggot. The Libyan sibyl. The names of plants and flowers, innumerable, repeated. A secret, a riddle, an oracle. I want to be left alone, and yet the men come and go, a new one each day. Burial mounds. The gay plague. The oleander, the palm. A papyrus reed, a walking stick, an arduous journey. Seeds of knowledge sown,

Juddering Reflexes: Stories of Ruined Part-Objects

The stakes of fascist positions that position themselves on a cultural and aesthetic terrain are increasingly spelled out in terms of liberation, “taking back control,” and transcendence or transgression of the status quo. Though these representations have evident historical roots that divide their proponents as well as their critics, they are also positioned as uniquely contemporary in their emphasis on restoring a politics of self-realisation argued to have been forsaken by the “authoritarian left,” as well as the tendency to indulge in fantasies of universal reason that have more to do with capitalist eugenics and neo-reactionary data science than the fetishized Enlightenment public sphere.
