Fall 2020 at the Arts Research CenterVisual ActivismAs we smell the colliding catastrophes in the air around us, I will resist rehearsing platitudes about what a challenging time this is. Instead, I invite you to engage with the artists and poets ARC is hosting this fall, all of whom work at the intersection of art and activism and all of whom inspire us, move us, and galvanize us. All of them use creative practices (including protest graphics, queer humor, innovative technology, and conceptual art) to further racial and economic justice.  Our upcoming event is on Tuesday, September 15 from 11:30-12:30pm PST, with artist and activist Favianna Rodriguez. Link here. George Floyd.Breonna Taylor.Ahmaud Arbery.Tony McDade. We say their names in order to express our horror and rage at the ongoing crisis of anti-Black police violence in this country and across the world. We call for the immediate demilitarization of the UC Berkeley campus, where the five of us lead academic research centers committed to anti-racist justice; this includes severing ties with police departments, ending contracts with private security companies, and changing cultures of “safety” so that the thriving, not the criminalization, of Black men, Black women, Black trans, and Black non-binary people is prioritized.UC Berkeley as an institution and as a collective of individuals must act to dismantle structures of racism and discrimination. We call on the administration to prioritize funding of the intellectual, cultural, and social labor of transforming the white, ableist and heteropatriarchal privilege that gives rise to the dehumanizing naturalization of physical, psychological, and socially systemic violence against people of color and other marginalized communities. We move in solidarity with the Black community on campus and nation-wide.Signed collectively,Julia Bryan-Wilson, Director, Arts Research CenterMel Y.
