Re-Locate at the Creative Time Summit, Venice Biennale

Re-Locate has been asked to speak and host a roundtable discussion at the 7th Creative Time Summit, “devoted to expanded notions of ‘curriculum.’” This year, the Summit will take place from August 11th to the 13th and within Okwui Enwezor’s exhibition for la Biennale di VeneziaAll the World’s Futures.

“Since 2009, the annual Creative Time Summit has operated as a convening, a discussion, and a platform for the intersection of art and politics. La Biennale offers a unique opportunity to gather an international, interdisciplinary community to consider how knowledge is produced and how it comes into contact with civil society.”

This Creative Time Summit asks: “How is knowledge formed within a person and transmitted through time, space, and social relationships? What learning practices reinforce colonialist views, leave out essential narratives of history, or otherwise support dominant power structures? How do new technologies effect the way information is controlled and disseminated? By asking questions such as these, we ultimately reiterate questions that arose from the tremendous hope, passion, and ambition that accompanied many of the key populist movements in the last few years, from the Arab Spring to the revolts in Greece, from Occupy Wall Street to Occupy Hong Kong: Who do we—as a world community—want to be, and what forces shape who we are?”

Our section, The Geography of Learning, is focused on issues “(r)anging from indigenous communities living under the rule of foreign governments to the creolized forms of knowledge produced in migrant conditions, this section highlights forms of knowledge informed and activated by its direct correlation to the politics of geographic space.”
