With Imaging Justice for the Dark Divine a group of artists/humanitarians/theorists/curators/activists consider the power of image making and its sharing as both an action of empowerment and deconstruction. anonymous bodies' Jaamil Kosoko + Kate Watson-Wallace will gather together scholars, curators, artists and various communities of the dark divine to consider what performative strategies we can use to imagine and realize the justice we deserve in the world. Through a series of actions, installations, dialogues, offerings, medicinal practices, rituals, and readings, Imaging Justice For The Dark Divine will attempt to collectively answer these difficult but vital questions. We will consider the metaphorical complexities/illegibilities of Blackness, asking each other to reassess the power of imaginative thought as a tool to decolonize our thinking, undo the learned reflexes we employ to protect our oppression, and challenge standard stereotypical notions of Blackness, redefining it in the present moment as an infinite space of limitless creativity, empowerment, safety, and evolution.
