BLACK GIRL* MAGIC
Zeit & Ort
Über die Veranstaltung
Jessica Lauren Elizabeth Taylor's multi-voice video project follows the matriarchal lineages of five black femmes. ‘Muttererde’ (D, 2018; 45 min) calls for femme forms of ancestral history in the face of the often interrupted historical knowledge of the African diaspora in Europe and elsewhere. What are rituals, teachings and abilities passed on from our matriarchs? How do these inherited skills serve us or inhibit us today? The conversations with five black femmes on the knowledge and non-knowledge of their mothers, grandmothers, great grandmothers and as far back as the knowledge carries them create a rich and powerful archive.

Supported by the Decentralized Cultural Work Tempelhof-Schöneberg, District Kunst und Kulturförderung Berlin and A Prima Vista Filmproduktion.
