Program text

The program is dedicated to the phantoms and traumas of colonial history as well as the ghostly invisibility of communicative capitalism. The Last Angel of History reconstructs the lineage of Afrofuturism from its mythical pasts to extraterrestrial futures. The Sea is History searches for a “finally emerging history” in the colonial legacy in Haiti and the Dominican Republic. Anathema develops a counter spell against the bewitchment of desires brought upon by digital gadgets.
