As part of the lecture performance series Fictive Witness, on 10/25 sociologist Alex S. Vitale will explore the history of the American Presidency vis-à-vis the Black Lives Matter movement and historian Nikhil Pal Singh will respond to Vitale’s call to abolish the presidency.

This fall the Goethe-Institut presents a new iteration of the series Fictive Witness, which started in 2018 as part of the Ludlow 38 residency program and is now again organized by artists Tali Keren and Alex Strada. The first lecture-performance will see sociologist Alex S. Vitale explore the deep history of the American Presidency in relationship to the Black Lives Matter movement and their calls to “defund the police.” Historian Nikhil Pal Singh will respond to Vitale’s provocation to “abolish the presidency.”
