What does Abolition Feel like? Anna Martine Whitehead
Anna Martine Whitehead works in performance. Their work considers embodied epistemologies of Black queer time and their expressions in liminal sites like prisons.
Whitehead’s Notes on Territory (2019) combines dance, lecture, and a reading room. The work examines containment in architecture throughout history—prisons, forts, public housing, and cathedrals—particularly as it pertains to Black subjectivity and Black women’s bodies, and how they exist as spaces of struggle and desire. Their process melds strategies for bringing physical and archival research together, creating live moments of mistranslation and transposition that highlight how the incongruities in colonial and imperial histories have shaped the world in which we live.
