#decolonize

Part of a new mural in Montreal by Jessica Sabogal. 

Since 1980, 3000 native Canadian women have been murdered/gone missing. Indigenous women are five times more likely than other women to die as a result of violence. Sixty percent of known perpetrators are white men.

Decolonial Aesthetics from the Americas »

The Symposium on Decolonial Aesthetics From The Americas will host diverse artists and scholars of the Americas and the Caribbean…

Decolonial aesthetics acknowledges and subverts the presence of colonial power and control in the realm of the senses. A decolonial option refers to a theoretical, practical or methodological choice geared toward de-linking aesthetics, at the epistemic level, from the discourse of colonialism that is embedded in modernity itself. It is an alternative approach that challenges the hegemony of modern/colonial aesthetics. By sharing their research and creative practices, symposium participants will develop and explore the decolonial option within the context of art practices in the Americas.

(Special thanks to my friends Zola + Stela)

End the exotification, fetishization, and tokenism of indigenous peoples on indigenous land! Decolonize Art & Culture! With this statement, we want to aknowledge that the public space we are using to create streetart is on stolen Native land. The city of Montreal rests on territory that was never given away or traded by the Kanien’kehá:ka Nation. Doing street art without regards to the History of these territories perpetuates colonialism. We hereby stand in solidarity with Idle no More and other grassroots Indigenous movements resisting colonialism everywhere in Turtle Island, and join forces with the settlers for the decolonization of this Land and of our relationships. As a concrete effort to bring up political issues regarding colonialism, we have created these solidary messages, in our way, in the streets. ——

THESE ARE SO MANY OF THE THINGS I LOVE IN ONE

“Not being racist is not some default starting position. You don’t simply get to say you’re not a racist; not being racist — or a sexist or a homophobe — is a constant, arduous process of unlearning, of being uncomfortable, of eating crow and being humbled and re-evaluating. It’s probably hard to start that process if you’ve been told that every thought you have is golden and should be given voice, and that people who are offended by what you say are hypersensitive simpletons.”

have repeated this countless times - yet it bears repeating again and again and again…
