SESSION The Spectacle of the ‘Other’ #3

“Identity is formed and transformed continuously in relation to the ways in which we are represented or addressed in the cultural systems which surround us.” — Stuart Hall

You are invited for the third SESSION of 2020, opening up experiences of identity and the art of writing. In this special two-hour long program, we are delighted to welcome multiple participants of the spoken-word collective A Mic of One’s Own, which is initiated by Rotterdam’s center for the written word, The Writers Guide to The Galaxy. This SESSION continues our focus on personal reflection and sharing, as an important way to connect and to challenge the ongoing spectacle of the ‘other’.

‘The Spectacle of the ‘Other’ is a three-part SESSIONS series inspired by Stuart Hall and the edited anthology Representation (1997). During the series this book will be on sale in our MELLY bookshop.

SESSIONS are monthly events hosted in MELLY and based on collective learning, where ‘expertise’ is opened up through conversation, performance, music, art, books and neighborhood connections. Anyone who is interested in sharing and who has a joy of learning from different perspectives is welcome.
