What you’ll do
Join poet and artist Khairani Barokka and curator Bárbara Rodríguez Muñoz for this conversation about Khairani’s new work ‘[Molekuler]’.
This new work consists of poetry and images that weave together narratives from headlines, histories and personal experiences during the pandemic. ‘[Molekuler]’ critiques the notion of what was ‘hidden’ during the Covid-19 pandemic. Accessibility is creatively woven into the work, with the poems describing the images.
Bárbara and Khairani will talk about the making of the work and will explore intertwined stories, from colonial legacies to today’s health inequities. Khairani will also read extracts from the work alongside sharing some of the images. The speakers will self-describe and describe visual elements of the event.
You will be able to comment and ask questions during the event using YouTube Live Chat and Slido. Your microphone and camera will be switched off for the whole session.
This event will be streamed live to our YouTube channel. After booking a ticket, you will receive a confirmation email with joining instructions.
‘[Molekuler]’ was commissioned by Wellcome Collection as part of a programme of new artworks for the collection interrogating the impact of the UK government Covid-19 campaign ‘Stay at Home, Protect the NHS, Save Lives’.
