Power of Listening

There is no history of Western civilization without a history of suppression, we see that reflected in the ways we communicate, think and interpret the world. Coloniality has irretrievably erased languages, cultures, species and possible alternate futures. Through the process of decolonial listening we try to activate these trajectories that have been erased; give a voice to those who have been deprived of historical existence.

POWERPLAY is about identifying and exposing hidden power structures. Over the course of this minor students have learned to unlearn the rigid terms in which we perceive the world, and been taught the power of listening as a different method of worlding the world. In their projects fourth year students address a wide range of topics pertaining to the critique and subversion of the status quo. They are starting conversations and questioning sociopolitical preconceptions about the differently abled, the media, language, education and more. We hope you join us in these conversations.
