Critical Mass


Critical Mass brings together artists, performers, musicians, dancers, writers and thinkers whose works seek to divert established pathways and political narratives. Critical Mass is a festival within a festival - a place for decentring, agitating, questioning and dissolving the boundaries of form.

Flesh, the law and black humanity

  • Siteworks 33 Saxon Street Brunswick, VIC, 3056 Australia (map)

A panel of BIPOC critical thinkers construct an imagined future. Tracking back to the present, they bare the socio - legal and political architectures that imprison and kill ideas, bodies and futures.

What might we do to intercept and subvert the necropolitical conditions where flesh, the law, and black humanity reside and die. All is discussed by a strong panel of Critical Thinkers - Dr. Nilmini Fernando, Claire G Coleman and Timmah Ball.

Flesh, the law and black humanity aims to stand outside of white Western colonial frames to discuss, theorize and address the outcast locations of the intellect, literature, art and bodies of First People, raced and gendered others in the settler colony.
