In the second part of the talk, we will reflect on critical aspects of animation, drawing on influences from Decolonial thought and the Philosophy of Technics. Animation will first be situated within an entanglement of socio-technical aspects, and then its aesthetic and technical developments will be presented as a form of writing that can be a site of struggle for epistemic disobedience and re-existence.
