Finale Diasporic Self: Black Love Letters & Manifestos

I’ll rewrite this whole life and this time there’ll be so much love.
– Warsan Shire

Zwart Licht beter nog licht in het donker
Luister! Luister en huiver
Bliksemschicht, bliksemschicht, bliksemschicht
– Zwart Licht

Fada, ju saka
pe son bar’ ‘kongowe!’
Gras’barki – so mi tu –
no tan a lampe!
– Edgar Cairo

Diasporic Self: Black Togetherness as Lingua Franca closes with a chain of love letters and manifestos by various contributors, strangers and surprise guests that touch on, celebrate, question and highlight feelings, memories, doings, poetry, art, and thoughts on reckoning with the realities of everyday black life in Europe.

With:
– Tour by Anne Krul
– Black Cake by Jabu Arnell
– Sounds, Poems & Thoughts by Barby Asante, Rabz Lansiquot, Ajamu, Amal Alhaag, Axmed Maxamed & many more.


Diasporic Self: Black Togetherness as Lingua Franca brings together artists, thinkers, poets and strangers to look into unconstituted archives and informal memories practices that inform, characterize and map contemporary black cultures in Europe. The project addresses the historical and contemporary relationships, codes and lingua franca that are transmitted between various diasporic (artistic) communities, and how these themes shape the practices, conversations and realities of producers and practitioners.

On show in Amsterdam & London
15 Dec 2018 – 17 Feb 2019 at Framer Framed, Amsterdam
