SOUNDS FROM THE CONTINENT & COSMOGENESIS

Performance

Europeans divided the African continent into arbitrary sections at the Berlin Convention of 1884-5 to ravage a continent of vast ethnic diversity. In this piece, Senanga Kuti performs a medley of songs originating from across the continent as a decolonizing gesture displaying the cultural richness of this continent and qualities that unify it. Cosmogenesis is a performative piece that explores the idea of decolonized spaces as new Universes emerging from the plasma of resistance.
