Join us for a screening and roundtable discussion of Les statues meurent aussi by Alain Resnais and Chris Marker. We would like to use this screening as an opportunity to brainstorm the contextualization of objects, and to discuss other critical questions regarding the project Colonial Neighbours.
Les statues meurent aussi focuses on historical African artifacts and the distortions that occur when European colonizers take them into their own hands, turning them into lifeless objects that lose their original significance.
