Join visual culture scholar Nataleah Hunter-Young on December 1 for the second part of her contribution to the Radiant Power program.

Following last week’s lecture where Hunter-Young looked to the work of artist-theorists who refuse an idea of “collective power” that requires or demands the circulation of anti-Black brutality in favour of other discursive modes, participants this week will have an opportunity to ask questions emerging from the lecture. They will also reflect together on the 1969 Sir George Williams Affair, as an example of collective power, and discuss what the visual language employed in Mina Shum’s documentary Ninth Floor (2015) contributes to the history’s retelling.
