We have recorded another episode (the 6th!) in the ongoing Diasporic Self: Black Togetherness as Lingua Franca series. A collaborative project / ’exhibition’ initiated by Amsterdam based researcher and curator Amal Alhaag and London based artist and curator Barby Asante. It is an ongoing visual, sonic and dialogic programme and exhibition environment that looks into the meaning, conceptualisation, multiplicities and complexities of the notion of Black Togetherness across Europe.
The 6th iteration is a conversation with two exceptional & prolific thinkers in their respective countries and beyond. And we have the privilege of bringing them together to discuss what it means to be Black in Europe in these trying times. We have Gary Younge, an award-winning author, journalist, broadcaster and academic. He was formerly a columnist at The Guardian he has been appointed Professor of Sociology at Manchester University. He has written five books among which Another Day in the Death of America, A Chronicle of Ten Short Lives which has also been translated into Dutch. He also writes for the Financial Times.
And We also have the visual & performance artist, activist, poet and visionary, our own Quinsy Gario. Quinsy was born on Curaçao and raised on St. Maarten and now lives and works in The Netherlands. He has a BA degree in Theater, Film & Television Studies, minoring in Postcolonial Studies and Gender Studies. Much of his work focuses on decolonial remembering and the Dutch colonial archive and institutions. Quinsy has been a frequent guest on our show and has recently contributed a chapter in the first publication by Dipsaus, De Goede Immigrant: 23 visies op Nederland which is the Dutch version of the successful The Good Immigrant edited by Nikesh Shukla.
