'Speaking About, With, or Nearby?'

ABSTRACT
At the outset of her film 'Reassemblage' (1982), an experimental
documentary about Senegal, the Vietnamese filmmaker and theorist Trinh T.
Minh-ha says "I do not intend to speak about. Just speak nearby." With
these words, at the very beginning, she problematizes the anthropological
gaze and discourses objectifying the 'other.' As an alternative to a
position of 'speaking about', she neither proposes to speak for, nor to
speak with, nor to speak as, but to speak nearby. This nearby includes
distance and closeness at the same time: a "speaking that reflects on
itself and can come very close to a subject without, however, seizing or
claiming it" (Trinh T. Minh-ha).
To a certain degree, we understand our curatorial and institutional work as
such a 'speaking nearby.'
