PerForm Discursive Programme: A World of Lines: From Third World Solidarities to Postsocialist Globalism
August 13 @ 10:00 am - 5:30 pm$15
PerForm returns with a one-day discursive programme by PerForm fellow Ho Rui An titled A World of Lines: From Third World Solidarities to Postsocialist Globalism. Through a series of presentations, workshops and focused conversations, invited speakers working across the fields of artistic, curatorial and historical research will facilitate a collective process of thinking through the shifting geopolitical imaginaries within what was known as the Third World in the years leading to the foreclosure of socialism as a mass political project. Through its source-based and open-ended format, the programme will allow participants to reflect on the ongoing intensification of unresolved Cold War-era tensions, resurgent ethnonationalisms and widening socioeconomic inequalities that have come to disrupt the lines of labour, technology and capital in the prevailing global order.
