The World of Statues: Mobility, Whiteness and the Infrastructures of Race

March 29, 2019, 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm

Free

Please join us for a lecture by Nicholas Mirzoeff, who will consider what Frantz Fanon called the colonial “world of statues,” both the widespread physical presence of colonial statues and museums, and the colonial refusal to allow mobility. These statues and their preservation of immobility form the infrastructures of “race” in material form. The dispossessed claim mobility and deploy their capacity. To sustain these claims, new infrastructures are required—first of services, and then of what Mirzoeff calls “appearance,” the right to appear and be seen as a fully human person.
