In a setting inspired by the conviviality of Passover, Tress_passing explores performance and artistic research as practices through which critical, intersectional, pluralist perspectives on and experiences of Jewishness can be elaborated. It is an invitation to interweave Jewishness with other a-national and diasporic positions that counter Eurocentric narratives of belonging; to look at under-acknowledged identities and histories, resisting posited dichotomies between Jewishness and Arabness or Muslim cultures; to seek pathways of solidarity with other minoritised groups, asking how Jewishness might question whiteness. The event will start with a performative sharing of artistic research by Ben Spatz, followed by a common meal and a lecture performance by Adi Liraz.


15-17h: Ben Spatz, "decolonial jewishness and the black planetary*" – plenary session
17–18.30h: Meal
18.30–20h: Adi Liraz, "My Fluid Body on an Uneven Political Ground" – lecture performance

*The lower-case spelling of identity terms is put up for discussion in the lectures.
