Caring as Lingua Franca – Fiction & Myths of Black Womxnhood looks into the historical and contemporary ways Black Womxnhood is fictively constructed and mystified.
To think through Black Togetherness in the context of #FORTEU is to carefully sit with the realities, agency and genealogy of Black womxn and their existence in contemporary Europe. What are the myths? What is the fiction that molds, produces and reshapes these realities across communities in the Diaspora?
Together with Ebissé Rouw, Mariam El Maslouhi, Olave Nduwanje and audience members we look and shift through popular culture and literature references to offer an alternative and intimate reading of what caring as Lingua Franca might entail in the context of the project Diasporic Self: Black Togetherness as Lingua Franca.
