Moving between discussions of film, photography, drawing, painting, and performance, this talk offers a meditation on the relationship between aesthetic seriality and violence.  Specifically, it aims to think about seriality in relation to questions of violence, dispossession, affect, and gesture to address the abstract refrains of fugitivity, flight, and refusal within black aesthetics.
