performance

Afrogalactica, a brief history of the future 1
Kapwani Kiwanga, performer

It’s the 2050s, and Kapwani Kiwanga examines the space conquest in which the Federation of the United States of Africa is taking part. Relying on pop-culture archives, she uses SF as an instrument for projecting possibilities. Come discover how Sun Ra, Parliament-Funkadelic, and other unlikely protagonists have influenced the course of history.

SCREENINGDISCUSSION

Africa and Science-Fiction, an expanding universe
Oulimata Gueye, curator

In a multi-polar world where the West no longer has the monopoly over the idea of the future, is Africa going to use science fiction as a fertile source of invention to shape its own future and write stories to accompany it?
