Lecture by Dr. Thabang Monoa organized in the frame of the Erasmus + project and the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna. An event in the scope of Conviviality as Potentiality: From Amnesia to Pandemic towards Convivial Epistemologies (FWF AR 679, 2021–2025).

How do we locate the co-ordinates of freedom? If the future is the psychic site that enables us to affirm our existence, then disrupting the tyranny of linear time becomes essential for our “becoming-free.” Through a temporal lens, this presentation looks at transatlantic continuities in jazz music between South Africa and the United States of America and looks at forms of collective freedom-imagining.

Presentation and moderation: Prof. Dr. Marina Gržinić
