Performance, Live reading with video projection
Friday November 28, 2014
Posing as an anthropologist from the future, Kapwani Kiwanga reflects on some major themes in Afrofuturism and their role in the development of the United States of Africa Space Agency. Plunging into the past to retrieve archives of popular culture, she uses science fiction, to make projections about the future.
Kapwani Kiwanga studied Anthropology and Comparative Religions at McGill University. An award winning filmmaker, her documentary work has been nominated for two BAFTAs. She has been exhibited internationally including at: Centre Georges Pompidou (France), Glasgow Centre of Contemporary Art (U.K.) and Kassel Documentary Film Festival (Germany).
Kapwani Kiwanga lives in Paris.
