BE.BOP 2016 Panel: The Haitian Revolution as Universal Moroon Legacy


InfoFestival Ticket: 25 € / 15 € / Day Ticket: 10 € / 6 € / Single Event: 6 € / 4 €


A Vodoun ceremony heralded the beginning of the end of Europe's savage capitalist enterprise in the Caribbean and elsewhere. According to Laurent Dubois we are all descendants of the Haitian Revolution and therefore accountable to its ancestry. This panel will address the Pan-Africanist legacies of the maroon leaders that created the first Black Republic. Some BE.BOP artists are expanding the stamina of Decolonial Aesthetics/Aesthesis inspired by the Haitian Revolution by focusing their attention on the forms of sensing and inhabiting the world that the modern/colonial order has suppressed.
