Notes on Territory brings together an array of research modalities to address the dialectical concerns: What is the prison; and What is the nature of freedom? Territory considers crosses and arches, walls and holes, as means of exploring the rich tradition of oppressed peoples' liberation practices. At its core, the work offers movement as research, in kinship with transdisciplinary artist-philosophers such as Torkwase Dyson, Dawn Lundy Martin, and Renée Green; transdisciplinary scholars such as Simone Browne, Michelle M. Wright, and Katherine McKittrick; and freedom dreamer Harriet Jacobs.
Arts + Public Life, an initiative of UChicago Arts, is excited to announce that we are partnering with the 2019 Chicago Architecture Biennial (CAB) to present this year’s focus “...and other such stories”, which explores architecture and the built environment, reflecting upon social, geopolitical and ecological processes that affect our collective past, present, and future.
