The Ethnography of Violence

film screening & debate /

A screening of the film by Renzo Martens Enjoy Poverty: Episode III and a conversation with participants of the symposium The Ethnology of Violence: Veena Das, David Mosse, Jonathan Stillo, the theoretician Anna Remešová and the documentary filmmaker Viola Ježková.

The conversation will examine the methods used by ethnography during field research and the investigation of the survivors, witnesses and victims of violence involving wartime, community, domestic and sexual violence. The speakers will examine these methods in the light of the film by Renzo Martens Enjoy Poverty. Martens proposes that local photographers in the strife-torn Democratic Republic of Congo use human poverty as the main source of national wealth. In the film he offers advice on how to capture images of one’s own poverty.

panel discussion /

Who should be able to access galleries and who is denied that possibility at present? Are galleries for parents with little children and other caregivers? Are they for young people, the ill and the handicapped? Do galleries treat the artists whose work they exhibit fairly? Why does the exhibition production team, unlike the curators and artists, remain invisible? Are people working in the sphere of contemporary art in a position to avoid (self-)exploitation and (self-)precarisation? What can they achieve under the present economic and social conditions? To what extent can they reject the criteria of grant applications or the necessity to produce constantly given the scandalous underfunding of the sector? Should positive discrimination be encouraged in gallery programmes if women and minorities are underrepresented?
