Drop in and experience the Finding Fanon film trilogy

Artists Larry Achiampong and David Blandy invite you to experience Finding Fanon. Navigating the past, present and future, Achiampong and Blandy question the promise of globalisation, recognising its impact on their own heritage, in their film trilogy.

The Finding Fanon project is inspired by the lost plays of Frantz Fanon (1925–1961), a radical humanist whose work explored the mental distress caused by colonisation and the social and cultural consequences of decolonisation. Achiampong and Blandy negotiate Fanon’s ideas, examining how the politics of race, racism and societal issues affect our relationships in an age of new technology, pop culture and globalisation.
