Black Atlantis

Ayesha Hameed presenting a series of sounds and images that form a part of her “Black Atlantis” project that looks at the Black Atlantic in contemporary, illegalised migration at sea, in oceanic environments, ¬†through Afro-futuristic dance floors, on sound systems and in outer-space.

Using Walter Benjamin’s concept of the dialectical image, Hameed examines how to think through sound, image, water, violence and history as elements of an active archive, and time-travel as a historical method.
