Join us for the launch of The Instagram Archipelago with author Elliot C. Mason with Special Guests Susana Medina and Ozge Ozdemir
Set on Idan Hayosh's peculiar Instagram page of women holding dead fish, The Instagram Archipelago is a conversation with contemporary culture's logics of gender and race. Working through recent thinking in Black studies and Hayosh's satirical images, Elliot C. Mason presents the aesthetics of capitalism as a sea that makes everything the same, turning the world into a single form.
The Instagram Archipelago brings radical antiracist and feminist scholarship to a general audience, applying a model of thinking beyond gender and race to the strange world of online fishing photos. This funny and fascinating book moves past the liberal celebration of gender and race, towards a tiny island of resistance in a growing archipelago.
