Saturday 19 June


At The Black-E, 1 Great George Street, Liverpool, L1 5EW

In a performative lecture, architect and theorist Godofredo Pereira considers how exhumations are paradigmatic of extractive capitalism’s violence over peoples and environments. Exhumations reveal the bodies the earth holds and what these have to say, be it soil, mineral or human bodies As such, exhumations are sites where modes of relation to earth are both contested and re-imagined.

This event is part of the Liverpool Biennial Live Weekend (19 & 20 June) and the final chapter of the Refracted Body film programme curated by Margarida Mendes.
