10:00 Conversation: Technology in Music
With Diann Bauer, Joanne Armitage and Freida Abtan

During the Defragmentation days, Diann Bauer, Joanne Armitage and Freida Abtan are leading a Technology in Music Makers and Writers Experiment Lab. They will discuss the progress and works-in-progress of the projects and how they connect with the larger topics of the Defragmentation conference.

10:40 Lecture Sarah Kember:
What can feminism still do?

What can feminism still do in the face of widespread, persistent gender inequality, everyday sexism and abuse? Will the current hashtag movements endure and how can they cohere in a post-political environment characterized by resurgent populism, masculinism and scientism? Sarah Kember’s question plays on Hélène Cixous’ concern with what writing can still do. As a theorist who is also a practitioner and a publisher, she will argue for the continued efficacy and indeed urgency of a writerly, agonistic, interventionist and intersectional feminism in contrast to new forms of dialectical feminism that are inclined.

11:20 Lecture Jérôme Glicenstein:
Forms of display

What is the impact of display on the perception of art? Art theoretician Jérôme Glicenstein, author of The Invention of the Curator and Art: A History of Exhibitions, shows how presentation forms and contexts have contributed to impart specific meaning to works-of-art throughout the history of art exhibitions.

12:00 Conversation: Decolonization as Method
With Bonaventure Soh Bejeng Ndikung and Berno Odo Polzer

This conversation revolves around decolonial practices, epistemic disobedience and delinking (Walter Mignolo) as methods in curating, both in visual art and contemporary music. Bonaventure Soh Bejeng Ndikung is the founder and Artistic co-Director of SAVVY Contemporary, a Berlin-based cultural center that “gives space to reflect on colonialities of power (Anibal Quijano) and how these affect histories, geographies, gender and race” through exhibition making, discursive programs, performances, archives, and residencies.
