Triple Canopy at Transmediale 2018, Berlin

Triple Canopy will present a workshop on resentment at Transmediale 2018 in Berlin, led by creative director Caleb Waldorf and senior editor Matthew Shen Goodman. The workshop will take place on Saturday, February 3, 2018, from 2 until 4 p.m. CET.

Resentment is perhaps the predominant affect of our time. Much has been made of resentment as an expression and experience on the internet, and as an animating force in the surge of right-wing populism in the United States and Europe. These accounts, however, may be too simplistic, as they often cast resentment as the province of straight white men—and as an excessive, selfish, and irresponsible feeling to have and articulate. As part of Triple Canopy’s twenty-fifth issue, which will be devoted to resentment, this workshop aims to address the following questions: Who has a right to be resentful? How is resentment stoked and policed, and how does it circulate among intimates and on larger scales? Can—or should—resentment be useful? How can it serve as a basis for describing a growing community, for cultivating a public? The session will involve an introduction to the topic, short statements by participants Aria Dean, Michelle Williams Gamacher, and Ana Teixeira Pinto, readings, video excerpts, and an open discussion.
