Performative Evening Symposium
With Luiza Prado, Edna Bonhomme, Rebecca Beinart, Tereza Silon and others
Curated by: Zuzana Jakalová, Hana Janečková and Display
Microsoft remote birth control implants tested in Africa, animal typologies and biometrics, South American and African herbalism entwined in the histories of pharmaceutic hormones—these are some of concerns of A Topography of Excesses, a performative evening of discussion accompanied by shared food made with medicinal plants.
In this conversation Edna Bonhomme, Luiza Prado, Tereza Silon and Rebecca Beinart, will explore technologies of the body and birth control, through exploring everyday objects to unravel the colonial structures of power produced and reproduced through their existence. With an emphasis on feminist pedagogy, the evening will reflect on the emergence and continuation of radical forms of care as decolonising responses to western patriarchal science.
The discussion will be accompanied by a dinner made by Luiza Prado.
This evening is a part of Multilogues on the Now: Technologie těla exploring our bodies as spaces of interaction between gender, technology, race and power structures. It questions the limits and barriers of bodily autonomy, produced and maintained through those conditions, while opening up discussion around radical approaches to care and intergenerational solidarity.
