This one-day symposium invites audiences to further explore propositions, artistic and political, invoked by the exhibition The Unfinished Conversation: Encoding/Decoding, and to dialogue with several of its featured artists, as well as the curators and guest scholars. Panel 1: Installation of the Real: Archive and Affect takes a deeper look into how John Akomfrah’s The Unfinished Conversation (2012), Steve McQueen’s End Credits (2012), and Zineb Sedira’s Gardiennes d’images (Image Keepers) (2010) retool past moving images, documents or photographs to renewed effect.
Moderator: Kass Banning
Participants: John Akomfrah, Zineb Sedira and Dr. Tina Campt
