‘Télémaque in Marmelade’ Talk at X Marks the Bökship

November 21, 2011


I will be giving a talk ‘Télémaque in Marmelade’ at the launch of a volume of new works by ARTicle press at Unit 3, 210 Cambridge Heath Road, London E2 9N on Saturday 3rd December 2011 at 6.45 pm.

This presentation will be in preparation for the talk I will give at the 2nd  Ghetto Biennale in December. It tells the story of how Vodou coincided with Mesmerism in pre-Revolutionary Haiti and the implications of this encounter for future representation of Haiti and Vodou in Western popular culture. The presentation will also be touching on the topic of paranoid critical theory.

Here’s some information about the new publications:

The five volumes address the relationship of art, performance, art writing and knowledge, as well as exploring art as counter-knowledge or a means to counter knowledge. The volumes contain essays, art works, illustrations, documentation of performances and diagrams.
