Event Details

Dispossession and Disposition: On the Work Cameron Rowland

Centering on Cameron Rowland’s Tax Return (2018), this talk addresses racialized embodiment and embodied life in relation to the interlocking questions of violence, surplus, and representation that subtend globalized flows of capital. If, as Paula Chakravartty and Denise Ferreira da Silva suggest, the logic of global financial capital hinges upon an irreducible raciality, how might we think about the minor aesthetic practices generated by “aberrant economic subjects” who at once bear the conditions of possibility for, intransigent threats to, and deviant enactments of dispossessive accumulation?
