Probably all of us have seen images that depict the unfree, but what about representations of freedom? And where can we find the actual promise of freedom in contemporary pictures and artworks? A provocative question, but active political consciousness mostly thrives on a critical mode of inquiry. Monuments like the Statue of Liberty in New York do not suffice as symbols one can belief in anymore. In his latest book, Freiheit ist kein Bild, Jörg Heiser analyses representational strategies that create a sense of solidarity among those who are at odds with what it means to be oppressed and unfree under the current status quo. The lecture will be accompanied by Oscar Chan Yik Long’s drawings, making this a dance of free and unfree spirits.
