Sentient encounters film night on queerness: Inhale-Hold-Exhale

The second edition of Sentient Encounters is just around the corner. AKI Enschede has invited writer and independent curator Erik Martinson to introduce us to deep, speculative, and queer encounters through a series of artist films.

AKI ArtEZ Hulsmaatstraat 35 Enschede
Sentient encounters film night on queerness: Inhale-Hold-Exhale

In between the screenings and afterwards, we will discuss with one another how queerness can be meaningful in thinking through many forms of ‘non-human’ or ‘more-than-human’ encounters, and the agency of sentient beings that are involved in these encounters. After the screenings, we will engage Erik in a conversation about queerness, and hear about his intentions, curatorial experiences, and points of reference for this series.

Inhale-Hold-Exhale is a night on queerness and sentient encounters, and as Erik suggests in his introduction: it is also about carving a space out of time, a pocket of pauses built for defense, reflection, and organizing action.

Host: Rana Ghavami

Sentient Encounters is a collaboration between Sjoerd van Oevelen (Department head of Moving Image, AKI Enschede), Agnieszka Anna Wołodźko (initiator and lecturer AKI BIO MATTTERs), and supported by ArtEZ Studium Generale.
