Our new curatorial research project collaborates with emerging voices that undertake methods of decolonizing cultural practice. Thus, constituting a new flow of practitioners that challenges historical patterns of colonial and imperialist domination, which have become ever more evident through climate breakdown and social unrest. We consider this reflexive moment requires international reach.
In collaboration with Rosario Talevi, we hosted and developed a Parasitic Reading Room—a performative reading session and a reader—as a live-stream event during the Dutch Design Week 2020. This format was initiated to listen to the contributors' thoughts on the proposed theme of (Non)Depleted. In preparation for our Parasitic Reading Room edition, we collected phrases, fragments, incomplete texts, and sentences selected by the exhibition's designers and artists and by our curatorial team. The selection of content indicates what resonated with the group's understanding of the term "depletion".
