Сau Silva + Denis Esakov. Friday May 12 @ Motto Berlin.

Posted in Uncategorized on May 9th, 2023 by admin

attentive curiosity of notunderstandingness – poetic essays on decolonial thinking and the violence of knowledge.

This is an invitation to join a book reading on Friday, May 12 at 7 p.m. in Motto.

“In the attentive curiosity of notunderstandingness, I have the feeling of being inside an infinite conversation in which knowledge and meaning are called into question, through the gaze of various entry points, philosophical provocations, relations, spirits, and rhythms. True to its critical and poetic essence, an encounter with the book seems to invite endless possibilities to enter and re-enter, chronologically and (better) anti-chronologically, and to discover and re-discover, anew.” Writes Grace Euna Kim @grace.euna.kim, Berlin-based Korean-American performance and visual artist, choreographer, and researcher.

Сau Silva @causilva.k and Denis Esakov @denisesakov will read a chapter ‘Happy Adult Future’ and the connections of linear time, images of the future, and hierarchies of power.

Denis Esakov, writer, curator and multimedia artist who graduated from Raumstrategien @raumstrategien (Weißensee Kunsthochschule Berlin @kunsthochschuleberlin). Denis explores the relationship between knowledge and power toward decolonial thinking.

Cau Silva studied Social Sciences at the São Paulo State University (UNESP) and Visual Arts at the University of Campinas (UNICAMP). Her works investigate the relationship between daily gestures and environments. Through videos, installations, and performances, she experiences the body immersed in a specific situation or place.

Meet us at the Motto @mottobooks starting at 6:30 p.m., reading starts at 7 p.m. There will be books and drinks, bring your friends and curiosity
