Committed to deep research and preparation, Bouchra Khalili develops her projects across long periods of time. When considered as a whole, the body of work she has created in the last 15 years can be seen as a meditation on unconditional and radical equality. For this lecture, she will share and articulate some of her work in order to address the essential questions that her practice investigates: the politics of memory of anti-colonial struggles and international solidarity; forced illegal migrations in relation to imperial and colonial continuums; egalitarian forms of citizenship as opposed to the nation-state model of citizenry; language, dialects, speech acts and agency.
