Escaping, hiding, fighting from the shadows: Opacity, transmission and toxicity


The talk explores some technologies of seeing — images, surveillance, categories, terror, representation — to give historical-geographic context to the PAIGC documentary film cadre’s work. Topics include the Berlin Conference, Kodak’s innovations in film and processing, imperial uses of anti-slavery, and the scopic imperatives of colonialism and apartheid. What are some contradictions, and how might we understand the PAIGC legacy as fundamental to ongoing decolonial practice that enlivens consciousness by re-seeing experience?
