After Agency

HAT Center, Poznan, Poland

DALab were invited to present at After Agency

‘Agency’ and the collective sensibility of agency inform the practice of research, knowledge production, methodologies and methods of situated thinking with the world at large. The post-human and ontological turn in the wake of the Anthropocene offers a certain opportunity to push further, conceptual questionings of what is conventionally thought of as agency. Attuned to the situatedness of each of our many political encounters – we notice the spectre of financial violence, white supremacy and capitalist injustice wound up in the figuring of our presumed times “after agency.” Does this not then call for a reimagining of our methods and methodologies?
