Hybrid Online/In-Person (2G) Event

Born out of the research group Zones: Topologies of Power co-organised
by Jeanne Etelain at diffrakt, ZONES | out of place is a two-day
programme set to bring together recent work from scholars, artists,
and activists. Over the past decades, the category of place has been
torn between, on the one hand, its erosion through the homogenising
forces of globalised capitalism and, on the other hand, its retreat
into the reactionary versions of rising nationalisms. Yet, from
Special Economic Zones to Temporary Autonomous Zones, we witness the
proliferation of new spatialities referred to as "zones" that seem to
challenge both the smooth globe of networked capitalisms and the
striated territories of sovereign states. While the zone seems to have
become a basic category of contemporary experience, acquiring a
political resonance, its potentialities and limits still remain

ZONE 1: Nomos and Zone in the Post-Colony: Achille Mbembe on Carl Schmitt (a reading workshop by Luke Collison) ZONE 2: Speculative Fictions of the Zone (a screening-lecture by Jeanne Etelain) ZONE 3: On disturbing functions of space and other ideas (artists in conversation, Marina Camargo and Héctor Zamora) ZONE 4: Terror Nullius by Soda_Jerk (a film screening) In accordance with current COVID-19 regulations, participation is limited. To register, please send a brief message to [email protected]. Following the 2G rule, masks will not be required, but all attendees will have to present either proof of vaccination or proof of recent recovery.
