Yet, Jacques Derrida describes the gesture of hospitality as paradoxically asserting a kind of sovereignty that underwrites the 'right to host', returning hospitality to the conditionality of the authorising institution. In settler-colonial territories, these institutionally underwritten gestures always sit uneasily atop indigenous sovereignties that have not been ceded, requiring the positive gestures of hospitality to remain open to their structuring fissures. This paper considers figurations of hospitality and responsibility in works by Derrida, Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak, and Raqs Media Collective in reading the art collective Local Time’s research-driven practice that seeks to reconcile indigenous self-determination and settler gestures of hospitality.<br />  </p> </div> <span><span lang="" about="/en/user/5" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">erlend</span></span> <span>Thu, 04/20/2017 - 15:33</span> <div class="field field--name-field-tags field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden field--items"> <div class="field--item"><a href="/en/tags/camping" hreflang="en">camping</a></div> <div class="field--item"><a href="/en/tags/curation" hreflang="en">curation</a></div> <div class="field--item"><a href="/en/tags/derrida" hreflang="en">Derrida</a></div> <div class="field--item"><a href="/en/tags/local-time" hreflang="en">local time</a></div> <div class="field--item"><a href="/en/tags/postcolonialism-hospitality" hreflang="en">postcolonialism hospitality</a></div> <div class="field--item"><a href="/en/tags/raqs-media-collective" hreflang="en">Raqs Media Collective</a></div> <div class="field--item"><a href="/en/tags/responsibility" hreflang="en">responsibility</a></div> <div class="field--item"><a href="/en/tags/spivak" hreflang="en">Spivak</a></div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-image field--type-image field--label-hidden field--item"> <img src="/sites/default/files/2019-07/butt.png" width="170" height="128" alt="Colonial hospitality: rethinking curatorial and artistic responsibility" typeof="foaf:Image" class="img-responsive" /> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-issue field--type-entity-reference field--label-inline"> <div class="field--label">Issue</div> <div class="field--item"><a href="/en/issues/10" hreflang="en">10</a></div> </div> <a href="http://doi.org/10.22501/jar.228399" class="btn btn-default external-link" target="_blank">OPEN EXPOSITION</a> <div class="field field--name-field-author-name field--type-string field--label-hidden field--item">Danny Butt and Local Time</div> Thu, 20 Apr 2017 13:33:19 +0000 erlend 1865 at https://jar-online.net
