Talk: Witches and Warriors, On Colonialism
Taking Naomi Rincón Gallardo’s fictional account of Mixtec activist Bety Cariño’s journey through the underworld, The Formaldehyde Trip, as a point of departure, join a panel of artists and scholars in a conversation about using fiction, fabulation, speculation, and radical histories to imagine pathways within and through the violent landscapes of colonialism.
Alongside short excerpts of Gallardo’s screen works, this conversation centers the world-making possibilities of indigenous and feminist expressions of resistance, while further investigating the intertwined topics of nation-building, cultural and environmental resource exploitation, capitalism, and territory.
The panel includes visual culture scholar Leticia Alvarado and others.
