Photograph of a laptop sitting on a sofa next to a notepad and pen. The sofa has a multicoloured patchwork quilt with a green cushion. On the laptop screen is a live event showing Khairani Barokka who has dark hair tied back and is wearing a purple top. On the right is Bárbara Rodríguez Muñoz who has shoulder-length brown hair and is wearing a red shirt. In the top left-hand corner of the screen is a red telephone icon with other video call icons “People” and “chat”.

Join poet and artist Khairani Barokka and curator Bárbara Rodríguez Muñoz for this conversation about Khairani’s new work ‘[Molekuler]’.

This new work consists of poetry and images that weave together narratives from headlines, histories and personal experiences during the pandemic. ‘[Molekuler]’ critiques the notion of what was ‘hidden’ during the Covid-19 pandemic. Accessibility is creatively woven into the work, with the poems describing the images.

Bárbara and Khairani will talk about the making of the work and will explore intertwined stories, from colonial legacies to today’s health inequities. Khairani will also read extracts from the work alongside sharing some of the images. The speakers will self-describe and describe visual elements of the event.
