FANON Now: Alexandrina Hemsley – documentation

Notes

Contribution by Alexandrina Hemsley for FANON Now – on the legacy of Mirage: Enigmas Of Race, Difference & Desire. The event brought together David A Bailey, artists from the original Mirage project, and artists from subsequent generations, to reflect on the contemporary moment in relation to structural violence, de-colonising culture and relations, and the power of aesthetics and its explorations of complex formations of racial identities.

Taking Receipts: A Log of Aggression for People of Color

Artist/Author: Aram Han Sifuentes, Ishita Dharap | Reference: P4227 | Type: Publication

“Sadly, as people of color we experience discrimination everyday. It’s exhausting. And when it happens, we often question ourselves, thinking: Did that just happen? Am I being too sensitive? And when we can identify that it is discrimination and speak to it, we’re often questioned and others often don’t believe us or brush us off, calling us too sensitive or angry. The burden falls on us to prove that we are being discriminated against. This book is here for you to take detailed logs of your everyday aggressions so that you can show off your receipts–proof.” Aram Han Sifuentes

Zong! (Wesleyan Poetry)

Artist/Author: M. NourbeSe Philip | Editor: Setaey Adamu Boateng | Reference: P4223 | ISBN: 978-0819571694 | Type: Publication

In November, 1781, the captain of the slave ship Zong ordered that some 150 Africans be murdered by drowning so that the ship’s owners could collect insurance monies. Relying entirely on the words of the legal decision Gregson v. Gilbert-the only extant public document related to the massacre of these African slaves-Zong! tells the story that cannot be told yet must be told. Equal parts song, moan, shout, oath, ululation, curse, and chant, Zong! excavates the legal text. Memory, history, and law collide and metamorphose into the poetics of the fragment. Through the innovative use of fugal and counterpointed repetition, Zong! becomes an anti-narrative lament that stretches the boundaries of the poetic form, haunting the spaces of forgetting and mourning the forgotten.
