On Thursday, 2 April, the CCA will be hosting an open talk by Kodwo Eshun for their 13th Speaker Series event. Kodwo Eshun, of the Otolith Group, will navigate the concept of Afrofuturism and discuss the Otolith Group’s most recent project, In the year of the quiet sun which looks at the grand enterprise of mid-twentieth century Pan-Africanism.

The Otolith Group was founded by Kodwo Eshun and Anjalika Sagar in 2002. Their work encompasses video, installation, exhibition making and publications. Kodwo Eshun is a British-Ghanaian writer, theorist and filmmaker, currently teaching on the MA in Aural and Visual Cultures in the Department of Visual Cultures at Goldsmiths College, University of London. Eshun is the author of Dan Graham: Rock My Religion and co-editor of The Militant Image: A Cine-Geography.
