Description

Public reading of The Dictionary of Dark Matters, a self-published people's dictionary on surveillance, racial capitalism and technology created during the Summer 2020 session of our class, Dark Matters: Critical Theory of Technology (taught by American Artist with Zainab Aliyu). Participants of the class shared their contributions to the culminating publication “A Dictionary of Dark Matters” containing an assemblage of poetry, prose, creative writing, personal histories and illustrations that redefine what a dictionary can be. The 500+ page publication holds definitions of terms such as Transparency, Redaction, Racial Gaze, Abolition, Tax State, Causal Pleasure, etc. based on participants personal experiences and (un)learnings from the class.
