Welcome to the LoCA Mini-Lab, an intensive interdisciplinary workshop designed to explore new ways of reflecting on de-coloniality. Selected participants will have the opportunity to work with established artists, authors, art historians, scholars, and curators to delve into critical thinking, experimentation, and practices related to de-coloniality.
The LoCA Mini-Lab is a 3-4 week program that operates like an alternative informal school of thought, focusing on participatory and exchange modes of collective learning and teaching. Participants will engage in intensive laboratories, workshops, reading and research groups, presentations, and screenings. Through these activities, they will gain insights and perspectives on various aspects of de-coloniality and develop their critical thinking skills.
The LoCA Mini-Lab offers a unique opportunity for participants to collaborate with experts in various fields, learn from their experiences, and expand their own knowledge and skills. The interdisciplinary nature of the workshop provides a diverse and stimulating environment that encourages participants to think beyond their own disciplinary boundaries and consider new perspectives.
Participants in the LoCA Mini-Lab will have the opportunity to engage in critical discussions, collaborative projects, and hands-on activities that explore the complexities of de-coloniality. They will be challenged to think deeply about issues related to colonialism, power, identity, representation, and more, and to develop new ways of approaching these topics.
By the end of the workshop, participants will have developed a range of skills, including critical thinking, communication, collaboration, and experimentation. They will also have gained a deeper understanding of the complexities of de-coloniality and its relevance to contemporary society.
