Over the course of a decade-long career, Belgian Director Jef Cornelis (1941-2018) has built a unique archive of exhibition histories through the format of the television documentary. Now-celebrated figures, such as Harald Szeemann, Daniel Buren, Sol Le Witt, James Lee Byars and Marcel Broodthaers feature in programmes that experimentally probe at the structural conditions of making art public.

Corey Hayman’s practice formulates connections between multifarious material to explore the matrix of afro-pessimism, the ‘hauntology of blackness’, progress and capitalism; culminating in an examination of the problematics which arise at the cross between representation and commodity structures. For Goldsmiths CCA she is developing an installation that deals with the aesthetisation of politics and resistance, exploiting moments of tension between race and capital to develop material responses. A text will be generated through the figure of Rastamouse, or rather a haunting of the Rastamouse character; a commodity who speaks, and a black body caught in a matrix of cultural representation, consumption and entertainment.

The exhibition provides an opportunity to see a broad range of powerful artworks made by Cokes since the 1980s, alongside two newly commissioned films. Cokes’ video works are eviscerating critiques and affective art works, bringing together colour theory, sound, music, and texts quoting a polyphony of voices such as Louis Althusser, Malcolm X, David Bowie, Public Enemy and Donald Trump. Meeting political and social commentary with cultural theory and a critique of capitalism, Cokes’ films viscerally confront the social condition, as well as the specific prejudices and threats suffered by black subjects. Recent works range across minimal techno, the Bush administration’s use of colour to engender a perpetual culture of fear, and music used to torture detainees during the so-called ‘war on terror’.
