Lola Olufemi (The Centre for Research and Education in Arts and Media, University of Westminster and partly funded by the Stuart Hall Foundation)

WHEN: Tuesday, April 26th, 2022, 4-6pm EST

WHERE: Woodsworth College Residences, Rm WO 20


Think of how a circle, rounded lines from a fixed point, seems to keep going and going. That could be key to our method.

Using an experimental mode, this presentation will explore ongoing research related to the utility, location and efficacy of the imagination in black cultural production in the UK, with a specific focus on the relationship between imagining, political organising and temporality. It will use the archive as basis for an argument against chronology in order to illustrate the affective possibilities inherent in temporal chaos, fragmentation and an iterative orientation to the past/present/future.
