POLICING BLACKNESS: MUSIC AND VISUAL CULTURE
Oct 8, 2019 7:00pm - 9:00pm talk/event
Participants: Dr Monique Charles, Gaika, Last Yearz Interesting Negro, Dr Anamik Saha, Dr Dhanveer Singh Brar.
 
Speakers from across the fields of art, journalism and academia, join moderator Dr Anamik Saha for an event that combines discussion and listening. Participants trace the Black British experience through music, asking how sound can be a form of resistance to hegemonic forces of dominant cultures, and if commercialism absorbs those energies. In response to recent police action to shut down Drill performances in London, the evening also examines how and why these musical practices are policed and contained. The event will feature a new performance by Last Yearz Interesting Negro, Practicing listening to the subterranean murmurs. Policing Blackness: Music and Visual Culture, is framed by Goldsmiths CCA’s current exhibition by Tony Cokes, whose work explores the nature of music under capitalism.
Please note that seating will be on cushions the floor. If you have accessibility issues that would prevent you from sitting on the floor please be in touch with the gallery ahead of time, goldsmithscca@gold.ac.uk
 
Co-organised with Dr Anamik Saha (Senior Lecturer and Co-Convenor of MA Race, Media and Social Justice, Goldsmiths).
