MOED Talks: Domitilla Olivieri

In this video series, MOED invites guests to talk about their views on equality and difference through artworks they find inspiring, empowering, and that have stayed with them over time. What is the power of artistic practice and imagination in the struggle towards a more inclusive society? How does imagination, affect, emotion, and reason, in their mutual connections, contribute to a better understanding of equality, difference, and inclusion?

Our second guest is Domitilla Olivieri, who is an anthropologist, activist, researcher and teacher in the field of gender studies, media and society. She is assistant professor at the department of Media and Culture Studies at Utrecht University. For MOED she discusses art in the public space, arts and politics and questions of inclusion and exclusion through the example of graffiti art and artists.
