Yasmine Akim: Why we need to decolonise art schools & showcase the collective agency of marginalised people

Yasmine Akim is a photojournalist and educator based in London. In this lecture she considers the space for critical thought in contemporary arts education, the photography curriculum and its pedagogies, black feminist thought, what intersectionality can and should look like, and a critique of the colonial white male gaze and its hegemony across documentary photography. She will use examples from her own practice to explore more authentic and empowering portrayals of marginalised people and movements such as Black Lives Matter.
