An online discussion

Questions we will navigate during this first salon include: What are displacements and gentrification? How do they manifest in our different localities? How do displacements and gentrification shape local and transnational lives? What are the conditions creating such phenomenon? What sort of dislocations are created through processes of gentrification and global capitalism? How do the events we organized in December address these questions? How might we move forward with these discussions together?

Purpose of the monthly Salons
The salon series is part of our platform, “Migratory Times,” designed to create spaces for thinking together, creating actions, and materializing new content for exhibitions and publications that focus on themes related to migration, gender, and the times and spaces of displacements. The Institute of (im)Possible Subjects is a transnational feminist network that seeks to build transdisciplinary learning communities of artists, researchers, designers, filmmakers, writers, activists, people, and collectives.

This event is in partnership with at land’s edge:
at land’s edge is an autonomous pedagogical platform based in East and South Los Angeles that nurtures the voices of cultural producers who are committed to social transformation. We understand pedagogy as not only a method of education, but as a critical space where the processes of teaching and learning, knowledge and action, and self and community are reflexive, interwoven, and oriented toward the liberatory possibilities of a just and democratic world.
