Past Events

tensions/ oppositions in flight

- Aylwyn Walsh


Feeling through tensions

light and what is unlit

what is remembered but what should not have to be remembered, because it should have never happened*

time and its shadows

optimism and its impossibility

re-presenting the body in encounter.


Writing of Black Studies:

'enlightenment and darkness, blindness and insight, invisibility and hypervisibility, converge in the open obscurity of a field of study and a line of flight' (2018: x).


Moten, F. (2018) Stolen Life. Durham: Duke University Press.



* this line resonates from Lubaina Himid's keynote talk on La Rodeur
