geopolitics II


We are repeating the Geopolitics referential field from the previous edition of the Glossary of Common Knowledge. With the repetition of this overarching yet contested method, we stress the importance of rearticulating international relations and global justice in the face of challenges such as migration, climate change, or right-wing radicalisation. The first edition of Geopolitics took place in 2015. With this second edition, a new group of international narrators address their current research and artistic projects and propose terms signified by specific local environments and contexts that go beyond the dominant epistemological models in contemporary art. They produce a multitude of voices that explore alternative ways of making global alliances, either by drawing from historical case studies or addressing urgent socio-political issues.
