“Creating a far-reaching and original dialogue between cultural theory and visual practice, the rich insights which emerge from this publication explain why Frantz Fanon’s seminal texts of the 1950s and 60s – Black Skin, White Masks and The Wretched of the Earth – have re-emerged at the forefront of postcolonial studies.
This collection of texts and dialogues work with Fanon’s ideas in understanding how narrative, the media, image, and symbol lie at the very heart of the practice of politics and social knowledge.
Originating from the symposium Working with Fanon held during the season Mirage: Enigmas of Race, Difference and Desire (ICA, London, 1995).”

Emese Kürti: Screaming Hole: Poetry, Sound and Action as Intermedia Practice in the Work of Katalin Ladik (2017)

“This book focuses on the experimental practice of Katalin Ladik, a poet, performer and actress born in the former Yugoslavia. Her career as a poet writing in Hungarian language began in the intellectual circles of the neo-avant-garde journal Új Symposion (New Symposium) in Novi Sad, but the subversiveness of her feminine practice gave her a distinctive position in the whole Yugoslav neo-avant-garde scene as early as the late 1960s. At the same time, linearity was also being replaced in Ladik’s poetic works by an extended notion of poetry, as she realised her actionism in a complex and mutual intermedial relationship between poetry, sound and visuality. Her performances attracted lively attention not only on account of an interpretation of poetry and sound that was radically new both in Yugoslavia and abroad at the time; her use of the eroticized body also seemed to lack any predecessors in the local avant-garde of the day. Katalin Ladik, who synthesized the traditions of Balkan folk music and Hungarian folklore, could work supraethnically, as it were, in this multiethnic Yugoslav context, using the references of multiple cultures, which suited with persistently international spirit of the avant-garde.”
