In Language Reversal: Move Past What We Know, Aaron Landsman, Clarinda Mac Low, and Ogemdi Ude are in dialogue with guests from around the world who have been subject to political authoritarianism.
Language Reversal: Move Past What We Know is part of a collaborative process about power, translation, and the toolkits for survival. For each program artists Aaron Landsman, Clarinda Mac Low, and Ogemdi Ude will be in dialogue with guests from communities that span from the Lower East Side to Serbia, Nigeria, Australia and beyond, all of whom have been subject to authoritarian turns.
When Clarinda Mac Low (US) and Natalia Thikhonova (Russia) had their first planning meeting for Language Reversal in early 2021, the US had just experienced an insurrection. The next time they met Russia was starting to experience an uprising. The continual upheaval has been on a parallel track with a pandemic and upwellings of many different kinds of mutual aid. Mac Low and Tikhonova weave together PowerPoint, video, and live lecture to investigate the ways that their nations exercise power and control, and the ways that communities exercise resistance and community care in the face of the absurdities of the carceral surveillance state.
