Research, performance, and video work conceptualized and produced with artist Daniela Ortiz through the framework of the project ‘You don’t need to be a voice for the voiceless, just pass the mic’ led by the research platform Pratiques d’Hospitalité/Practices of Hospitality.

With monuments celebrating Jean-François Champollion as our point of departure, we explored the notions of coloniality, institutional racism, and cultural appropriation in France, and searched for modes of resistance through performative gestures: our bodies, and texts by Frantz Fanon and Houria Bouteldja.

We shared this work publicly at KADIST Paris through a performative event and screening, in relation to the three-year project ‘Not Fully Human, Not Human at All’.
