This seminar series will take up the notion of refusal, resistance and rest as the site from which individual and collective resistance is enacted.
Together we will consider how we might begin to articulate a subjectivity that attends to the psycho-social dynamics of lived experience outside the terms of the colonial gaze, moving beyond a conversation of identity, representation and oppositional politics. We will watch films, media clips and read texts as triggers for discussion and action considering the role cultural products play in the activation of political acts.

About Rehana Zaman

Rehana Zaman is an artist based in London. She works predominantly with moving image and performance to examine how social dynamics are produced and performed. Her work speaks to the entanglement of personal experience and social life where intimacy is framed against the hostility of state legislation, surveillance and control. She was the recipient of a British Council research grant with Museo de Art Carrillo Gil, Mexico City (2015), a Gasworks International Fellowship to Beirut (2013), and was a LUX Associate Artist (2012–13). Recent and upcoming solo exhibitions include Kochi-Muziris Biennale 2018, Kerala, India, Liverpool Biennial 2018, Liverpool, UK, Serpentine Projects, London, UK (2018); Berwick Film and Media Arts Festival (2018), CCA, Glasgow, UK (2018); and Material Art Fair IV, Mexico City, Mexico (2017). Her films and installations have been shown at Oberhausen Film Festival, ICA and Whitechapel, London and Bétonsalon Paris. In 2017 Zaman was awarded the Paul Hamlyn Award for Artists.
