Lecture/Q+A by Mabel O. Wilson on her transdisciplinary practice studio & will ask: can the practice of history/design become a “Black study”?

Modernity has built its superior culture through its forms, aesthetics, and practices to place it above and beyond the primitive, savage, folk, and the racial other. If, as poet Fred Moten suggests “study is what you do with other people. It’s talking and walking around with other people, working, dancing, suffering, some irreducible convergence of all three, held under the name of speculative practice,” then this lecture/q&a by Mabel O. Wilson on her transdisciplinary practice Studio& will ask: can the practice of history/design become a “Black study”? Sponsored by the Department of Architecture.
