MEETINGS AT THE BIENNALE ARTE 2022

MEETINGS ON ART AT THE BIENNALE ARTE 2022

Running on 4 October and 6 October, a second iteration of the Meetings on Art programme for the Biennale Arte 2022 curated by Cecilia Alemani will bring together nine speakers in two conversations to discuss topics such as the queer and the eerie, the category of thingness and animacy of the nonhuman; and the re-enchantment of the world as a path to examine our interdependencies with nature, the Earth, and animals.

Tuesday 4 October, Teatro Piccolo Arsenale, 5:30 pm > 7:30 pm 
THE QUEER AND THE EERIE

Perhaps to question the human-male-centric view of the world and to imagine a more livable future requires an examination of liminal concepts such as the queer and the eerie. This conversation will discuss life and death matterings, the category of thingness, animacy and animation of the non-human, and dehumanization and death of the human through the politics of queerness and the eerie, race, sexuality, and gender.
Speakers include Mel Y. Chen, Associate Professor of Gender & Women’s Studies at U.C. Berkeley and Director of the Center for the Study of Sexual Culture; P. Staff, Sidsel Meineche Hansen, Diego Marcon, and Precious Okoyomon, participating artists at the 59th International Art Exhibition.
Moderated by Mel Y. Chen.
Introduction by Cecilia Alemani.

Thursday 6 October, Teatro Piccolo Arsenale, 5:00 pm > 7:00 pm
“RE-ENCHANTING THE WORLD”

For feminist theorist and activist Silvia Federici, the “re-enchantment of the world” means “to reconnect what capitalism has divided: our relation with nature, with others, and with our bodies”. This panel will explore inspirations for a re-enchantment of the world: examining our interdependencies with, and forms of affection for, nature, the Earth, and animals; communal relations; rituals and myths; craft; and folklore.
Zoom Keynote by Silvia Federici, feminist activist, writer and teacher. 
Speakers include Julia Bryan-Wilson, Professor of Contemporary Art and LGBTQ+ Studies at Columbia University; Magdalene Odundo and Liv Bugge, participating artists at the 59th International Art Exhibition.
Moderated by Julia Bryan-Wilson.
Introduction by Cecilia Alemani.
