Obama & Me @ Camden’s People
22 – 23 May Tickets

about

“I am a cog in the wheel of Free Movement. I am my ancestors’, my contemporaries’, and my descendants’ wildest dreams.”

While Barack Obama is fulfilling his American Dream as the first Black president of the United States, Sylvia Arthur, a Black Brit, is in Brussels in pursuit of the European version.

Working at the political heart of Europe, tasked with promoting Freedom of Movement, she zigzags the continent proselytising the benefits of a borderless Union.

But as the President faces resistance to his agenda, so does she as nativism, authoritarianism, misogyny, and racism sweep through Europe, and the world, and dreams begin to crumble.

detail


Interweaving music, video, and images with spoken word, Obama & Me takes on the big issues of Brexit, Trump, US and EU race relations, and the global refugee crisis in a powerful, compelling narrative that explores the meaning of identity, politics, power, and belonging in the post-post-racial 21st century.

A family searches for new beginnings:

Ben thinks they might be better off without him, but his wife Cat has read her stars: ‘Today a very special person will appear from out the blue’.

People think that cos you’re from a small village, everyone will know you. But we can still go missing. Even out here.

Joe White’s debut play Mayfly explores rebirth in the aftermath of tragedy.

“this heartbreakingly funny debut play by Joe White… a tender and wise play suffused with grief and absence that scratches at the fragility of our existence and asks how we keep alive our memories of those we have lost. It’s a play about people consumed by misery yet it is unexpectedly funny and – like its dented, broken characters – always likable.” Lyn Gardner, The Guardian

Welcome to the desert. The London lesbian scene. A couple of little sad old basements that drip with sweat and piss. We sit, listening to second-hand pulsating noise coming from some gay boy night upstairs. And it’s a Wednesday. And it’s a night called the ‘Clam Jam’. Can you imagine being straight and going to a night called the ‘Cock and Hole’?

The women in black. The best tables are marked theirs by a crowd of empty prosecco bottles. They sit there in their uniformed black, a deep rich black only lots of money can buy… and they are looking at you.

They are not nice girls. But this is not a nice story.

Grotty is a dark, savage, and unflinching exploration of lesbian subculture in London.

The exhibition reflects a more diverse, complex view of the world, as captured and recorded by photographers. Driven by personal and political motivations, many of the photographers sought to provide an authentic representation of the disenfranchised communities with whom they spent months, years or even decades with, often conspiring with them to construct their own identity through the camera lens.

What’s On Recommends
Killed Negatives @ Whitechapel Gallery
Until  21 Aug Free

about


Thousands of negatives by American photographers were systematically destroyed in the 1930s; these irreparable images were known as ‘killed negatives’.

Roy E. Stryker, head of the Information Division of the Farm Security Administration (FSA), launched a historic photographic initiative between 1935 and 1944. In order to expose American rural poverty, the FSA commissioned photographers, including Walker Evans (1903–1975) and Dorothea Lange (1895–1965), to record the struggles of rural life following the Great Depression. Omitted from the story of this landmark documentary project is the ruthless method of editing Stryker deployed for the final selection. The negative of each rejected image was punctured with a hole puncher; if a print was made the image would feature a black disc, floating surreally over faces and landscapes.

This display presents prints made from some of the rejected negatives as well as photographers’ personal and administrative records. Also included are contemporary artists’ responses to these haunting images. The photographs transform an act of censorship into abstract, conceptual and strangely beautiful pictures.

detail


FSA photographers include Paul Carter, Jack Delano, Walker Evans, Theodor Jung, Dorothea Lange, Russell Lee, Edwin Locke, Carl Mydans, Arthur Rothstein, Ben Shahn, John Vachon, Marion Post Wolcott, alongside contemporary works by Etienne Chambaud, Bill McDowell and Lisa Oppenheim.

“The key message from this display is that people of African and Caribbean descent played a significant part in our military history long before the First World War. This was not well acknowledged at the time, or well known since, which is why it is important to highlight this history in this display.”
Professor David Lambert, Professor of History at the University of Warwick
