Screening followed by a discussion with Irit Rogoff


Ursula Biemann's Sahara Chronicle - videos on mobility and the politics of containment in the Sahara, offers diverse accounts of the experienced conditions of migration. A sequence of twelve short videos. The piece examines the politics of mobility and containment which lies at the heart of the current global geopolitics and takes a close look at the modalities and logistics of the migration system in the Sahara. Unlike the networks facilitated by lasting material infrastructures such as rails or fiberglass, the trans-Saharan migration network is a vibrant process of spatialization performed by the psychic dynamics of anxiety, fantasy and desire, a web made of obstinacy and vulnerability. Screenings are followed by the artist in conversation with Prof. Irit Rogoff, Goldsmiths University Reserve your place: or call 020 7749 1240
