Resting: Convening with Hanita Firoozmand and Andrea-Vicky Amankwaa-Birago
19:00–21:00, Convening, Resonance Room

Can what we think of as rest be transformed into practices other than just sleeping? And how can we reverse the act of awakening? This meditative effort invites us to slow down, to look within and around ourselves, to attend to our bodies, to lay them down and yield to the guidance of a curated sequence of sounds.

The practice of resting has become a form of resistance especially for Black people, to survive in our machine-level pace of our culture and surviving the trauma of the terror of poverty, exhaustion, white supremacy and capitalism (see Tricia Hersey, Rest is Resistance: A Manifesto).

This event is part of the becoming neighbours programme conceived by the Gropius Bau’s Neighbour in Residence hn. lyonga.

21:00–23:00, Summer terrace
