Within the framework of EX-EMBASSY, off-site at Archive Kabinett, Aboriginal artists will discuss their contemporary practices, politics and collaborations in relationship to the exhibitions’s focus on negotiations of value and territory; narrative and identity, beyond Westphalian governance forms and gentrifying capitalist property logics. The session begins with a screening of Blaktism (2014) by Megan Cope from the exhibition in Pankow.
