‘The Ectoplasm of Neoliberalism’ is the first solo exhibition of Karen Mirza after two decades. Taking a step further to experiment with her ongoing exploration of positions that concentrate on women, bodies and sites of resistance, Mirza brings forth a confluence of occult and radical politics. Her large scale collages are drawn from her research in radical and psychic archives, her set of photo-prints are outcomes of studies of dissonance. Alongside the recent video piece ‘Everything for Everyone and Nothing for Us’, made with her long-standing collaborative partner Brad Butler, Mirza invites co-investigators to delve into private and public conversations on the theory of Ectoplasm of Neoliberalism from their angles of Astrology, Radical Politics, Kundalini Yoga among others. Conversations with Alice Knowles, Zach Blas, China Miéville, Siri Sadana Kaur, Darby Costello, Sim Elif Kaplan, will charge the space with intention, meditation and process. The week will cultivate a setting for elaboration and a zone for unleashing the potential of progressive thinking and provocation around the possibility of evoking a new stance, and will conclude with a workshop for ideas that pulls together fragments from the discoursive and semantic production. The Kundalini Yoga sitting has limited capacity and tickets will be available from Thursday 2nd of July.
