Dark Sousveillance:
a workshop with Simone Browne, Sondra Perry and Mia Charlene White

This event is now fully booked, for future events, sign up to our newsletter.

Taking our cue from Simone Browne’s Dark Matters, this workshop was concerned with understanding the ways in which individuals and communities are affected by daily narratives of dominance, oppression and racialised surveillance.

How do people resist and survive within oppressive societies through acts of solidarity? How do we make visible the unsung gendered labour of care within communities? How can the concept of sousveillance also become a resistant practice of seeing each other through a lens of care rather than oppression?

Together through a series of discussions and exercises led by Simone Browne, Sondra Perry and Mia Charlene White, the group shared how we challenge these repressions with counter-narratives and community action.

This workshop was free to attend but booking was required and on this occasion people who identify as female, non-binary or trans POC were given priority places.

To book a place, participants sent a brief expression of interest (100 words max) to the Serpentine Projects team Amal Khalaf on [email protected] and Elizabeth Graham on [email protected] by Friday 11th May.

Sondra Perry (b.1986, Perth Amboy, New Jersey) constructs multifaceted narratives that explore the imagining, or imaging, of blackness throughout history. Often taking her own life as a point of departure, she makes works that revolve specifically around black American experiences and the ways in which technology and identities are entangled.
