Leviathan’s Scaffolding

2023 – ongoing

Filed under:

research, events

Using the famous frontispiece of Hobbes’ Leviathan, this research and manuscript-in-progress questions the division of state and individual sovereignty and recasts both within discourses on race, violence, and white supremacy. State sovereignty is repositioned as a process of repeated failure, one that leads to Black death by distributing the monopoly of violence across a white population.
