Romi Ron Morrison (Mercator Fellow at the CRC 1512 Intervening Arts, artist-researcher at USC Los Angeles)
Dr. Layla Zami (Postdoctoral Researcher in performance studies at the CRC and interdisciplinary artist) 
Jumoke Adeyanju (poet, sound artist, curator of Poetry Meets)
Host: Kelly Krugman (SAVVY ZAAR Radio)

In this session, we will explore how Black Feminist engagements with sonic realms defy and re-define the notion of artistic intervention. Which possibilities are created by an attention towards quiet and subtle sounds in arts and academia? How can multidimensional and multisensorial approaches work towards decolonizing our senses and selves?

Romi Ron Morrison will present the current creative project The Future Conditional. Inspired by Tina Campt’s evocation of Black Feminist futurity as a conditional practice, Morrison creates a series of networked sound installations using interactive textiles and Black diasporic pattern making. The artist and researcher will be in conversation and interaction with artist-scholars Dr. Layla Zami and Jumoke Adeyanju. The evening will also include performative poetic interventions, a breeze of live-music, and a musical Ausklang: a playlist curated by Morrison, inviting the audience to engage with Black sonic worlds.

The event is organized by Layla Zami (Project B05, Decolonizing Working Group), and is part of of the laboratory format series Future Lab in cooperation with SAVVY Contemporary.

Media partner: Refuge Worldwide Radio.
