Black Atlantis
Panorama Test

Ayesha Hameed is a writer, academic and artist and her piece Black Atlantis is a powerful audio-visual essay that combines themes of Afrofuturism and the Anthropocene. It’s currently part of Konsthall C’s exhibition Precarious Terrains And Entangled Situations, which explores the colonisation of nature and ecocide.

Hameed’s Black Atlantis imagines the intersection of history, science fiction and club music. She focuses on the work of Drexciya, the Detroit electronic artists whose albums imagined an underwater colony of former slaves who had adapted to breathe in water. Her work takes that world and explores it and imagines new events and adventures in it. She performs that piece live with Tom Hirst at Konsthall C on Friday, May 18.

May 18, 18:00-21:00, Konsthall C
