The White Building, London
As part of the ongoing cyberfeminism series NEWGenNOW, The White Building presents SALT. Symposium.
In a climate where traditional modes of articulating refusal through physical action become criminalised or dangerous, language, and furthermore what can be done with it, becomes the only potent weapon left. This symposium will look to errors or interruptions in communication that offer space for disruption and subsequently open up new ways to disobey through glossolalia: to speak in tongues, to be incomprehensible, and to confuse.
Taking the form of the manifesto as a starting point, this refusal to accept what is given, and to look for alternatives or space for transformation between the lines, is what characterises the speakers and their subject matter: those who attempt to put into circulation performative gestures of disobedience as models for experimental protest.
