Black Queerness & Diasporic Lives

30 November at Framer Framed
Come to Framer Framed on Friday 30 November for an event in the preparation & build-up period of the group exhibition Diasporic Self: Black Togetherness as Lingua Franca, initiated by artist and curator Barby Asante and researcher and curator Amal Alhaag.

Black Queerness & Diasporic Lives draws on everyday intergenerational black queer social life, love and communities to look into the embodied experience of Black Queer people in Europe. How have people shaped their lives, communities, practices and activism across borders, beyond marginalisation and violence in Europe?

This evening is an intergenerational gathering in progress and brings together intimate, personal, anecdotal and joyful memories, strategies and perspectives together. With contributions by artist, activist and researcher Ajamu X and artist, organiser and activist Anne Krul.

Exhibition Diasporic Self: Black Togetherness as Lingua Franca opens at both Framer Framed (Thursday 13 December 2018, 19:30) and 198 Contemporary Arts & Learning (7 December 2018, London). Sounds and sonic practices will guide us in the ways sound and visual cultures continue to (re)shape alternative lexicons and influence the contemporary black cultures across Europe.
