Nica recommends: ‘Geographies of Freedom’ Screening and Panel Discussion
Date: Thursday 17th June
Time: 18:00-20:00 (CEST)
Free, Online via Zoom
Soapbox are delighted to present a screening of the film ‘Geographies of Freedom’ developed by multimedia artist Miguel Peres dos Santos and researcher Egbert Alejandro Martina.
What is freedom and what constitutes a free life? How have architecture, the law, and geography been used to consolidate the spatiality of freedom? These are questions that are posed by the Geographies of Freedom research project, developed at Het Nieuwe Instituut. The eponymous film explores these themes by delving into the neocolonial ties of the multinational Shell and the Dutch Antilles through a compilation of archival footage.
The screening will be followed by a panel discussion with the director Miguel Peres dos Santos, Prof Dr Yolande Jansen, Dr Floris Paalman, and Mikayla Vieira Ribeiro, moderated by Lijuan Klassen.
This is a free event, but please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org to receive the Zoom details
