Directed by Michael Connolly

A towering and thrilling Shakespearean masterpiece featuring one of the theater’s most entertaining villains and the array of brilliant women and men who oppose him. Master of a diabolically cruel wit, Richard boasts that he “can smile and murder whiles I smile….” In response, the poet W.H. Auden suggests that the murderous king “must always make enemies, for then he can be sure he exists.”

Enacting the Archives, Discentering the Muses: Museums and Biennials in the Colonial Horizon of Modernity

When: 
Thursday, January 30, 2014 - 5:30pm

Using three examples - the Museum of Islamic Art in Doha, the Museum of Asian Civilizations in Singapore and the SharjahBiennial 11, 2013 - Mignolo will argue that complex processes of delinking and dewesternization are taking place in the sphere of museums and biennials, parallel to the economic and political process of delinking currently under way in the economic and political arena. He will distinguish these processes from decolonial delinking that can be seen in, for example, the work of Fred Wilson, Pedro Lasch and Tanja Ostojic.
