This panel is supposed to be about joyful, liberatory aesthetics. So what do we need to develop in order to advance that conversation? What kind of non-white,non-Anglo,decolonial aesthetics and imaginaries are needed today for this political moment?
I’m going to talk about things that scare me on the Internet, things that I’m afraid of, and things that maybe we can’t yet make a horror film. We definitely can’t make a film as bad as The Ruins about this stuff, but I would say it’s a lot scarier than The Ruins, which is just gross.
