Beneath the Mask:
Artists, Archives and A/Gender — A day of events, exhibitions and spectacle.
March 16th 2017, 10am-4pm
Sidney Cooper Gallery, Canterbury
Beneath the Mask: Artists, Archives and A/Gender will provide an exciting day of events, exhibitions and spectacle prompted by Claude Cahun‘s exploration of identities and masking.
Throughout the day and with an eclectic and playful mix of presentation and performance, Artists, Archives and A/Gender will explore concepts of identity and masquerade.
Curatorial walk/talks; authors and artists in conversations; poetry and performance will shape the day, providing a plurality of perspectives and an opportunity to enter into dynamic dialogue and discussion.
This one-day event is in partnership with UAL’s Photography and the Archive Research Centre‘s ‘Moose on the Loose’ Festival. Contributions from a number of CCCU’s centres for research will include: the Centre for Research on Communities and Cultures; the Intersectional Centre for Inclusion and Social Justice (INCISE); the Centre for Practice-Based Research in the Arts and the South East Archive of Seaside (SEAS) Photography.
Note that this event will include adult content and themes.

Producing the nation:
Larissa Sansour’s Dystopian Visions of Palestine
Speaker: Sinéad Murphy (King’s College, London)
Ideas of nation and politics of self-determination have long dominated representations of the Palestinian-Israel conflict, to the extent that “the conflict is understood primarily as a clash between ‘narratives’” (Anna Bernard) – a clash which artists, writers and filmmakers are frequently expected to negotiate. Utilising what she describes as the “odd mix of nostalgia and accomplishment” which science fiction affords, Larissa Sansour creates and interrogates narrations of the nation in Palestine and Israel through film, photography and installation. Sansour’s dystopian visions reinvigorate long-standing questions of identity and belonging in the context of conflict and displacement in Palestine.
Sinéad Murphy is a third-year PhD candidate in the Department of Comparative Literature in King’s College, London. Her research is an AHRC LAHP-funded project on contemporary Arab speculative fiction in English. She completed her BA and MA degrees in University College Dublin, Ireland. She is the administrator for the Kings Fantastic Talks series, and the co-organiser of the Department of Comparative Literature 2016 PGR conference, Seeking Refuge (http://seekingrefugekcl.com/). Her primary research interests include science and speculative fiction, contemporary Middle Eastern literature, postcolonial theory, and theories of comparative and world literature.
