THE FUTURE ANTERIOR
May 22, at 1 p.m.*
(lenght: 2 hours)
*(GMT-3 BRAZILIAN TIME)
Larissa Sansour works mainly with film, besides installations, photos, and sculptures. Central to her work is the dialectics between myth, and historical narrative. Born in East Jerusalem, Palestine, her recent work uses science fiction to address social and political issues while dealing with memory, inherited traumas, power structures and nation-states.
The talk will bring the use of sci-fi tropes in an art context and the shifting of meaning resulting from that. Sansour will show excerpts of films and images of her work covering more than a decade of her art practice. The discussion will revolve around the ideas behind framing political discourse in speculative fiction and the inadvertent retro temporality this proximity generates.
