Anahita Razmi’s performative lecture Research Network: New Eastenders – The Prequel at Iniva, Jan 25

, 23 January 2018

Anahita Razmi will present performative lecture Research Network: New Eastenders – The Prequel at London’s Iniva (Institute of International Visual Arts) on January 25. 

In reference to the British soap opera Eastenders, the lecture will “shift its storyboard for an ‘East and its End’.” The Berlin-based artist looks at stereotypes, pop culture and consumerism to explore the concept of the ‘East’ and the ‘Orient, asking “how do identities and bodies transform from one place to the other?”

Using the concept of “non-linear and non-original,” the lecture acts as a prequel to “something not already scripted or broadcast.” Dr. Anamik Saha who teaches on the Goldsmiths’ MA Race, Media and Social Justice course will hold a discussion following the performance.
