Taking the dis-connections between the three cinematic projects in the exhibition as points of departure, Professor Abraham will engage in a critical conversation about the multiple pasts of what is today called the Global South. A historical overview of the Bandung Conference and its links to the Non-Aligned Movement, real and imagined, will help contextualise different Cold War trajectories as structure and as possibility.
