Larry Achiampong and David Blandy: Media Minerals
Part of: Imitation of Life: Melodrama and Race in the 21st Century at HOME, Manchester
Join us in the gallery for the book launch of Fear Eats the Soul, which accompanies our Imitation of Life exhibition.
In Media Minerals artists Larry Achiampong and David Blandy present a spoken-word lecture by remixing sound and lyrics as a means of researching the post colonial, and its relationship to today’s globalised media and technologies. The performance draws on the conflict minerals that power the new media devices we use to communicate today, most of which derive from the Congo.
