The Possibilities of the Black Archive
Meditations of the Black Archive is a series of readings, conversations and gatherings focused on critical and creative contemplations of the black archive within a Swedish and European context. In a world organized around antiblackness and black unfreedom, the black archive is a mapping as well as imagination of spaces of breath, break and breach.
The first talk in the series, The Possibilities of the Black archive, is the introductory mapping of black archives as a space of possibility and rupture. Judith Kiros, Rafaela Stålbalk Klose and Madubuko Diaketé provide thoughts on the meanings of the black archive from their experience and practice. Hopes, speculations, desires, and constraints entangled with the black archives in the Swedish context. The three speakers will offer us a start to a conversation.
