Gaze: On the Verge of the Visible queries the site where epidermis, vision, and apparatus meet. The project encompasses a series of workshops, which directly engage with histories of racialized representation. Working collectively, we will seek to disturb visibility and find approaches to impeding inherently racialized sight. Together we approach the question of how does one refute racist typologies governed by sight whilst working with the visual? During the workshop process we will engage with testimony, discussion, and creative working on methods of representation.
Gaze is supported by the Durham Wharf Foundation and ReachOutRCA, and will take place between August and October 2017 across London with support from hosting institutions.
