Nov 20: LISTENING TO IMAGES, Tina Campt



tina camptListening to Images

a Decolonizing Vision Speaker Series lecture by Tina Campt

November 20, Monday
6 to 8 pm

Tina Campt, Africana and Women’s, Gender, & Sexuality Studies, Barnard College

In this book talk, Tina Campt discusses her recently published monograph Listening to Images (Duke UP, 2017) which explores a way of listening closely to photography, engaging with lost archives of historically dismissed photographs of black subjects taken throughout the African diaspora. Originally intended to dehumanize, police, and restrict their subjects, these photographs — which range from late nineteenth-century ethnographic photographs of rural African women and photographs taken in an early twentieth-century Cape Town prison to postwar passport photographs in Birmingham, England and 1960s mug shots of the Freedom Riders — convey the softly buzzing tension of colonialism, the low hum of resistance and subversion, and the anticipation and performance of a future that has yet to happen. She hears in these photos a quiet intensity and quotidian practices of refusal. Campt will also share her most recent work: a meditation on renowned filmmaker Arthur Jafa’s remarkable seven-minute video installation Love is the Message and the Message is Death (2016).
