Titled after Lola Olufemi’s “Experiments in Imagining Otherwise”, this lecture series learns from established practices that shift the focus from European contexts or knowledge systems and instead champions decolonial epistemologies and methodologies. We will navigate the space between what is and what could be, weaving through an exploration of identities and the possibility of living otherwise.
In this event Imani Jacqueline Brown will present her research and work on the MARCH journal, Black Ecologies and the extractive systems of settler-colonial societies – highlighting the body politics involved in our ecological understanding of the world.
Imani Jacqueline Brown is an artist, activist, and researcher from New Orleans. Her work investigates the ‘continuum of extractivism’ (which spans from colonialism to climate change) and imagines paths to ecological reparations.
Imani received an MA in Research Architecture from Goldsmiths in 2019. Among other things, she is currently a PhD candidate at Queen Mary, University of London, a research fellow with Forensic Architecture, and an associate lecturer in MA Architecture at the Royal College of Arts.
