On Racial Authenticity

On Racial Authenticity
On Racial Authenticity

Racial Authenticity is based upon essentialist notions of race and ethnicity, but it also describes the way in which we claim our subjecthood as identity by merging autobiography, practice, and body. Anthropologist/artist Julian Warner draws from his ethnographic fieldwork on the current state of black cultural workers in Germany, to address this articulation of racist discourse, progressive politics, and neoliberal commodification.

Sorrow Swag

Sorrow Swag is the first part – in blue – of Ligia Lewis’ triptych that deals with race and representation. She meticulously creates a hybrid body that is in constant flux. Towards the end, the body transforms into nothing more than a mouth and an unrelenting scream. Earlier this year, Lewis made a big impression at WoWmen!18 with minor matter, the second, red instalment of this series.

Begin the Beguine

Two men – both imprisoned in one way or another – want to live it up one last time. Begin the Beguine is the last text that the legendary filmmaker John Cassavetes ever wrote. The jet-black allegory about love and death was kept in a cupboard for 25 years by Cassavetes’ heirs. Until the German publisher S. Fischer Verlag asked Jan Lauwers to take on the staging of this masterpiece.
