Anne Duffau is a researcher and founder of the nomadic platform A---Z. A---Z reflects on current socio-political issues around the gaze on the ‘other’ and its representation, its definition for new possibilities: future bodies, gender identities, empowerment in deconstructing (hi)stories & exploring technology, its opacity / How can we imagine an alternative & revolutionary world through Sci-Fi narratives?Show more
Exploring artistic practices and knowledge exchange through collaborations, presentations, soundscapes, screenings and discussions, A---Z aims to open up audiences by sharing discursive practices in order to challenge preconceived ideas on race, gender identities and the so-called history in terms of power relationship.

A reflection on current interests have crystalised my research on the gaze, the ‘other’ and its representation, its definition for new possibilities: future bodies, not only the empowerment in deconstructing and alternative (hi)stories but also exploring technologies and the opacity / How to think of a new, a revolutionary world through Sci-Fi narratives? Exploring artistic practices and knowledge exchange through presentations, screenings and discussion A---Z aims at opening up to a large audience by sharing discursive practices in order to deconstruct preconceived ideas on race, gender identities and the so call history in terms of power relationship. The methods employed are of the same kind of a classic event but in terms of the deliver the outcome will be different – it will take place in unusual spaces for this kind of question but also it will take a turn where knowledge production happens – where thought provoking and engaged practices comes together to think through new ways of curating – and researching in event making.
