With artist and writer Coco Fusco and Sara Ahmed, Professor in Race and Cultural studies


The fourth in a lecture series evaluating keywords in art, culture and society. Artist and writer Coco Fusco and Sara Ahmed, Professor in Race and Cultural studies, Goldsmiths; explore the term 'resistance' in relation to diveristy and cultural practice. Coco Fusco draws in her interdisciplinary work on her Cuban heritage, using language performance and multimedia to explore issues of difference and cutural politics. Fusco has performed and curated throughout America and internationally, and her work explores the relationship between women and society, war, politics, and race. Sara Ahmed is currently Professor in Race and Cultural Studies at Goldsmiths University. Her research is concerned with how bodies and worlds take shape; and how power is secured and challenged in everyday life worlds, as well as institutional cultures, and her work explores how differences, otherness and strangeness become ‘properties' of bodies and spaces over time. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Keywords takes its title from Raymond Williams' seminal book Keywords: a Vocabulary of Culture and Society first published in 1976, which looks at how the meaning of words change as the context in which they are used changes about them
