Edward George Bootleg Lecture


Edward George: Last Angel of History.

Edward George is a founder of Black Audio Film Collective (1982-1998), the multi media duo Flow Motion (1996-present), and the electronic music group Hallucinator (1998-present). George, the writer, researcher, and presenter of Black Audio Film Collective’s ground breaking science fiction documentary Last Angel of History, will present and discuss the film and its themes of music, Diaspora, science fiction, and its engagement with Afro futurism.

Chair: Ayesha Hameed

Please note the change in the Futures & Fictions schedule. Edward George’s talk replaces the conversation between Ayesha Hameed and John Akomfrah announced as taking place on this date.

Futures and Fictions explores the political imaginary, the inventing and imaging of alternate narratives and image-worlds that might be pitched against the impasses of the present. The series ranges from future-oriented science fictions and alternative space-time plots to myths and images generated by marginalized and ‘minor’ communities, queer-feminist strategies of fictioning, and the production of new Afro- and other futurisms.

Series Organisers: Henriette Gunkel, Ayesha Hameed & Simon O’Sullivan

The event is free and no booking is required.
