THE HAITIAN REVOLUTION AND BEYOND

GHETTO BIENNALE CALL DEADLINE EXTENDED UNTIL FRIDAY 10 MAY 2019

A call for artists and curators (calls in Kreyòl, Español, Ελληνικά, Français available on the website)

‘Every form of enslavement generates in one way or another an opposing struggle for liberation’ Carolyn E. Fick, The Making of Haiti, (The University of Tennessee Press 1990)

The Haitian Revolution, possibly one of the most important and overlooked, revolutions of the world appears to have been written out of Western history.

‘The silencing of the Haitian Revolution is only a chapter within a narrative of global domination. It is part of the history of the West.’Michel-Rolph Trouillot, Silencing The Past, (Beacon Press, Boston 1995)

We welcome projects that both memorialise, and challenge the memorialization of, the Haitian Revolution. We are looking for alternate narratives to the Slaves Revolt. We invite complex readings of the leaders as well as alternate histories from below. We encourage non-binary, queer, surreal and magic versions of the slaves revolt.

We ask for historically reflective, contemporarily comparative or future speculative projects which use the Haitian Slaves Revolt as a starting point.

‘The paradox between the discourse of freedom and the practice of slavery marked the ascendancy of a succession of Western nations within the early modern global economy.’ Susan Buck-Morss, Hegel, Haiti and Universal History, (University of Pittsburg Press 2009)

These are just a speculative list of directions your projects could possibly take but we are open to all directions, forms and suggestions of projects that explore the Haitian revolution.
