Panel Discussion: Of Other Futures:
Artist Abbas Zahedi will host Of Other Futures, a panel discussion exploring the potentiality of otherness within the scope of contemporary art practice. Zahedi will be joined by curators Paul Goodwin, Annie Jael Kwan and Cédric Fauq.

The talk follows the format of a menu and encompasses the conceptual coherence of ‘otherness’, opacity and authorship in curating, the unfixed archive and identity. Our speakers are also responding to writings from figures including Michel Foucault, Édouard Glissant, Donna Haraway and Hannah Arendt.
