Date: 19th July 2018

During an Artist's Talk in the context of the 2018 Salzburg Summer Academy (Austria) where he directed a class, Emeka Okereke discussed his works and experiences of navigating borders for close to 15 years. He drew from personal stories of encounters to illustrate some of the thoughts and positions that continue to inform his work and life.

Specifically, he touched on and gave examples of covert, passive-yet-aggressive forms by which the violence of racism and otherisation is perpetually inscribed in the everyday European space while offering proposals on how to move toward a more relational world where the place of human interactions and exchanges is prioritised over Capital. Where Capital is given its rightful place at the service of human lives rather than human lives exploited to sustain the machinery of Capital.
