Archival Encounters: artist talk by Belinda Kazeem-Kamiński
- Hörsaal, HFBK Hamburg
Belinda Kazeem-Kamiński is a writer, artist, and scholar. Rooted in Black feminist theory, she has developed a research-based and process- oriented investigative practice that often deals with archives, specifically with the voids in public archives and collections. Interlacing the docu- mentary with the fictional, her works manifest themselves through a variety of media and dissect the present of an everlasting colonial past: a past without closure. Her research interests are connections between ethnographic photography and colonialism, representation, as well as investigating the Western gaze on marginalized people.
Screenings of her films took place in the frame of e.g. International Film Festival Rotterdam, Diagonale – Festival of Austrian Film, Vancouver International Film Festival, among others. Solo and group Exhibitions she participated in include: Kunsthalle Wien (2021), The World Is White No Longer. Ansichten einer dezentrierten Welt (2021), The Knowledge Potential of Child- hood (2019), Dark Energy. Feminist Organizing, Working Collectively (2019), Hauntopia/What if (2017). Her awards and prizes include: Camera Austria Award (2021), DOC-Stipendium Austrian Acade-my of Science (2018–2020), Cathrin Pichler Prize (2018), Theodor-Körner-Prize for Art (2016). As a lecturer, Kazeem-Kamiński has been conceptualized and held lectures and workshops about critical whiteness and pedagogy, Black and decolonial aesthetics, Black feminism, representation.
