Here is my response to @akbild grotesque statement!!
A summary 🧵, jump to last one if you want to read the whole letter... 2. @akbild decision to cancel my lecture on the basis of unfounded allegations goes against the principles that your institution, as a legal entity of public law, is bound to observe. This includes your duty to respect the diversity of academic and art theory, and doctrines

1. Today at 5pm, I was meant to give a lecture, for which I was invited since February, at @mumok_vienna and @akbild for the 'decolonial feminist' programme launched by Verein K.

But, four days ago, I have been CANCELLED under the pressure of pro-Zionist groups in Vienna. 2. So far, all I have been told that the abstract I submitted a long while ago, and was approved by the same institutions...is 'offensive' and contains 'transgression of discursive boundaries'.

That is, calling #Zionism a #SettlerColonial state is not acceptable in Vienna!!
