Migrant Futurism: Join the renowned decolonial activist, theorist and author of 'A Feminist Theory of Violence' and 'A Decolonial Feminism' for her key-note presentation about the UK’s Illegal Migration Bill.
In this talk, Vergès draws connections between forced migration, climate breakdown, gender violence and systemic violence to insist on the need to develop and enhance international solidarity in the face of these interconnected planetary crises.
In works including A Decolonial Feminism and A Feminist Theory of Violence, Vergès explores the intersections of race, migration and gender in the context of 21st century global capitalism.
This event is part of the launch of Migrant Futurism, a long-term curatorial strand of research and public programming led by Radical Ecology, in collaboration with Counterpoints Arts and the Southbank Centre.
Migrant Futurism interrogates cultural strategies, in the context of displacement, for the imagination of just and sustainable futures.

The State will not protect us from gender violence. Our feminism must be anti-racist and decolonial, and must fight for everyone's safety
