Assuming the Centrality of an Africana Cosmos – Beyond Coloniality

Lecture by: Thomas Talawa Prestø

THURSDAY, 26 AUGUST 2021

FROM 18:00 – 20:00

FREE ENTRANCE

How we perform art and culture and what function this has in society, and to the production of knowledge, is often connected to our view of the world. Even in attempts at decoloniality we have a tendency to look at art and culture, and experiences from other parts of the world through the same lens and cosmology as the Western. But when death is not final, ancestors still dance, the gods take over our bodies through holy rhythm, and

individuality is performed in a group instead of individually.

What is produced in these instances? How do non-colonial expressions view themselves and how can this contribute to a better decolonial understanding.
