Tracing Cultural Disorders
Four Curated Panels
The TASAWAR TRANSCULTURAL TALKS are an example of curatorial positions that are informed by cultural disorders – in particular sexism and racism, discrimination, and injustice – as pertinent issues of present tense. The curators chose topics that are of importance for the cultural environments they belong to, as for their personal developments. They are backed by the idea of taking responsibility, looking out for networks of solidarity, and taking action to ignite change. The choice of topic and contributors, as well as the design of debate, profits from the curator’s sensibility to detect and address issues that hinder productive identity-building or violate human rights, that limit tolerance and democratic culture, and thwart sustainable, resilient developments >>
