Within the lecture series on anti-racist, BPOC and migrant practices, actions and activism within the field of art organized  by the Working Committee on Equal Treatment, Akademie geht an die Schule, the Institute of Art Theory and Cultural Studies and Institute of Fine Arts. The following group of people is responsible for the first two events: Anna Janowiak, Simone Bader, Petja Dimitrova, Moira Hille, Guenay Oezayli, Abiona Esther Ojo, Ruth Sonderegger.

This lecture series aims to create a space that makes the multiple BPOC and migrant voices (in the field of art) present, heard and respected. Moreover, the lecture series intends to work towards a space that is free of Eurocentric ignorance and offensive statements. We invite everybody attending the events to keep that in mind and help to create this space.

The lectures intend to create a dialogue between the invited speakers and hosting local activists, theorists and/or artists. By spinning a conversation around current conditions of Black, POC and migrant lives within the field of art we hope to highlight anti-racist fights and empowering strategies.

Melodie Holliday and Julie Wright’s talk will be based on the work of the founder of Shades of Noir, Aisha Richard's chapter in the book Inside The Ivory Tower: Narratives of Women of Colour Surviving and Thriving in British Academia: „Reclaiming Freedom Beyond the Glass Ceiling to Transform Institutional Cultures“. Shades of Noir is an independent program by a collective based at the University of the Arts London (UAL)
