Rules of Evidence at the Haus der Kulturen der Welt

A program entitled Rules of Evidence will be presented at the Haus der Kulten der Welt during the first week of June when I’ll be in Berlin with three students to study street art. Curated by Okwui Enwezor, the project is “the first edition of a new biannual encounter at Haus der Kulturen der Welt that will feature five days of thematic programmes, conceived by a group of international filmmakers, curators, artists and theoreticians. A key component of the encounter is the critical re-evaluation of historical processes in the light of the contemporary moment. Also at stake is the role that images and strategies of representation, subsumed under the term ‘documentary,’ have acquired in present-day politics.”

SLU professor Obiora Udechukwu is a colleague of the well-known international curator Okwui Enwezor.

I saw on the HKW Web site that they are looking for readers to participate in a series of public readings that “involve throughout the entire forum live public readings from books on historic atrocities: W.G. Sebald, On the Natural History of Destruction; Antjie Krog, Country of my Skull; Philip Gourevitch, I Would Like to Inform You that Tomorrow We Will All Be Dead.”  I have written to see if my students and I could participate.  Obiora and Chika Okeke-Agulu (AKALA) will be in Berlin next week and now I know why.
