Little Palestine: Diary of a Siege
(Lebanon/France/Qatar, 89 minutes, 2021)
Followed by Q&A with director Abdallah Al-Khatib

The district of Yarmouk, at the outskirts of Damascus, sheltered the largest Palestinian refugee camp in the world from 1957 to 2018. The regime of Bashar Al-Assad perceived the camp as a hideout for rebels, so the Syrian army held a siege from 2013 until the camp surrendered a few years later.

The Deep State of Iconocide

Lecture, 27 Jan 2023, 19:30 

Investigating the processes by which images lapse from the field of visibility, Attia reflects on hypervisibility as a strategy of blinding and erasing. Drawing on Algerian psychoanalyst Karima Lazali’s work around erasure, Attia will explore further how the Deep State (effectively the imperial machine) is able to perversely mobilize bureaucrats as well as citizens in erasing visual traces of crimes it has committed.

Magische Ähnlichkeiten bei Freud und Wittgenstein

Lecture, 14 Feb 2023, 20:00

Sigmund Freud war beeindruckt von James G. Frazers The Golden Bough: A Study in Magic and Religion (zuerst 1890). Seine kulturtheoretischen Überlegungen zur Funktion von Magie folgen Frazers Argumenten in gewisser Hinsicht, verweigern sich aber einer strikten Trennung von magischer Vormoderne und nichtmagischer Moderne.

Lessons of Post-Studio Art

Discussion, 15 Feb 2023, 19:00

The Politics of Beginnings

The Politics of Beginnings

Hannah Arendt Today

Conference, 15-16 Feb 2023

At a moment when many suggest that the end of an era has been reached, and when struggles against climate change, exploitation, neocolonialism, patriarchy, and racism proliferate, what role can Arendt’s account of political beginnings play in the conceptualization of a new time? Arendt has been celebrated as a key theorist of politics, freedom, and judgement.
