Join us as we reflect on an increasingly forgotten period of burgeoning black and brown urban subcultures.

Though often remembered as the decade of Cool Britannia, with its predominately-white, Union Jack wrapped aesthetic, ’90s Britain was also defined by pirate radio, Asian daytime raves and the formation of a number of autonomous black art collectives, marking a watershed in British multiculturalism.

 

Drawing on the experiences of artists, academics and cultural commentators, our panel will explore both the politics of solidarity and the forms of cultural conviviality that took shape at this time.

 

This event is as much about celebrating that moment, as it is to shed light on and discuss the new political binds of our current cultural landscape, where issues of diversity, authenticity and representation are often conflated, misused and recklessly deployed.

 

This event is curated by Omar El-Khairy and Ana Naomi de Sousa
