The Power & Limitations of Representation: A thought-provoking presentation that will challenge your perception of visibility and its relationship with shared humanity. We will delve into the complexities of campaigns that derive their power from visibility, such as the fight for marriage equality, and question whether they truly benefit those who are not seen as fully human. We will explore how these campaigns often reinforce existing power structures, favoring the privileged, white, male, cisgender, and affluent groups, while neglecting pressing concerns faced by marginalized communities.
This presentation will challenge us to think critically about the impact of visibility campaigns and explore alternative approaches towards achieving true equality and justice for all.
