»The Learning and Unlearning of Violence« by Vanessa Gravenor

The artist Vanessa Gravenor investigates the long-term effects of military conflicts and focuses her research on linguistic violence as a form of weapon. She takes a critical approach to militancy language in educational books financed by American donors and distributed to Afghan refugees in the 1980s.

A personal experience with violence promted this work: the artist was hit in the attacks in Paris in November 2015, which likewise feeds into the analysis. In the lecture performance she analyses a biographical vocabulary list of her PTSD therapy. Beyond her own experience she also clarifies the connection between this biographical experience and the effects of financing war in the larger political context. She herself uses linguistic means to understand the feedback loops of the war on terror today.
