Urban Humanities: Speculative Indigeneity – A (K)new Now by heeten bhagat

27 September, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm SAST

Join ACC for a brown bag lecture by PhD student heeten bhagat on entitled Speculative Indigeneity — A (K)new Now. 

Heeten holds a BA in Design and Merchandising from The American College in London and a Masters in Audio Visual Production from London Metropolitan University.

His initial training as a pattern cutter has allowed him the chance to grow, and, to experience and work: designing period costumes; building sets for adventure programmes; making experimental films; curating a national gallery; teaching at a French university; providing strategic support to newer organisations; making curious podcasts; and inviting a provocative hybridity to his family’s cookbook.

Currently journeying through a PhD, he simultaneously offer creative, strategic, and manual support to a number of organisations and communities regionally.

His research delves into notions of indigenousness and indigeneity in contemporary Zimbabwe. Of particular focus is the objective to explore/engineer/imagine methodologies, through speculative research, that trouble indigenous essentialisms.
