Examine communal and personal heritage through film and performance

Inspired by the lost plays of radical humanist Frantz Fanon, the Finding Fanon project examines how society, race and racism affect our relationships with each other in an age of new technology, pop culture and globalisation.

Artists Larry Achiampong and David Blandy work collaboratively and share an interest in popular culture and the postcolonial position. They examine communal and personal heritage, using performance to investigate ‘the self’ as a fiction, devising alter-egos to point at their divided selves. Over two years, their research has evolved into a body of work including digital imagery, exhibitions, performance and video.
