Onyeka Igwe: still from her film ‘We need new names’
Onyeka Igwe and J.D. Stokely“Our work is interested in the idea of using archived materials to create a “necessary fiction” that explores the complexities of our ancestral histories. How can we as artists challenge the western simplification and belittling of black history through auto-ethnographic practices?
Kabe Wilson “Through the lens of Stuart Hall’s theory of ‘inferential’ racism, I will unpick the ways in which the complexity of intersectional hate speech means that the essentialist narratives of media and legal assessment remain inadequate tools for responding to it.”
