CAMPUS Talks: Tina Campt

The Slow Lives of Still Moving Images

In this talk, Tina Campt builds on her recent work on listening to images by engaging a key concept of what she calls “black visual frequency” through an exploration of still-moving-images: images that hover between still and moving images; animated still images, slowed or stilled images in motion or visual renderings that blur the distinctions between these multiple genres; images that require the labour of feeling with or through them.

With the launch of CAMPUS Independent Study Programme, we will be hosting a series of talks by CAMPUS faculty exploring alternative modes of education, decolonial practices, Black studies and anti-fascist movements.

Free. The talk will take place on Youtube.
