8th Edition

CAPITAL OF WOKE April 25—28, 2019. Le Centre Tour à Plomb–Hageltoren, Slachthuisstraat 20–26 Rue de l’Abattoir, 1000 Brussels

The 8th edition of POPPOSITIONS will take place between April 25 and April 28 with a professional preview on April 24. We will welcome 26 participants from 12 countries.

The 8th edition of POPPOSITIONS will revolve around the term “woke” and how its mainstream popularity and increasing application intersects with corporate and capitalist structures. The idea of being woke and wokeness concerns raising social awareness, taking actions in response to dominant paradigms, acknowledging one’s privileges towards understanding the struggles of others, and giving space to social bodies that have been silenced, unacknowledged and underrepresented. With the forthcoming edition of POPPOSITIONS we want to think collectively about what responses and forms of resistance can be formulated when ideologies have become trendy and woke-washing brands cash in on social justice.
