Artists, educators, curators, scholars, and collectors provide lectures and presentations that encourage greater understanding of the arts.
Slavs and Tatars joins ART PAPERS and the BMA to explore the potential of language-and particularly, of transliteration, or the conversion of scripts-as a strategy of both resistance and research into notions of identity politics, colonialism, and faith.
Long-Legged Linguistics is one in a series of lecture-performances in the collective’s latest cycle of work, which examines the ever-changing and always powerful alphabets of Eurasia—where Arabic accompanied the rise of Islam, Latin that of Roman Catholicism, and Cyrillic that of the Orthodox Church and, later, communism. Long-Legged Linguistics attempts not to emancipate particular peoples of notions, but rather the sounds rolling off our collective tongues, in any region of the world.Event Details »
