Diasporic Self: Black Togetherness as Lingua Franca ~ a collaborative project initiated by artist and curator Barby Asante and researcher and curator Amal Alhaag! On view at Framer Framed from 13 December (opening) – 17 February 2019.
Diasporic Self is an ongoing visual, sonic and dialogic programme and exhibition environment that looks into the meaning, conceptualisation, multiplicities and complexities of the notion of Black Togetherness across Europe. In what ways does Black Togetherness manifest itself in visual and sonic cultures in various urban and contested spaces, institutions and architectures?
The project takes place in two spaces simultaneously – Framer Framed in Amsterdam and 198 Contemporary Arts and Learning in London.
