Lavoir Moderne Parisien (35 rue Leon, Goutte d’or)

From 2pm daily. Listen at panafricanspacestation.org.za

Presented by Chimurenga with: Blaise N’Djehoya; Marie-Julie Chalu; DY Ngoy; Yebga Likoba; Cheikh Tidiane Fall; Fabienne et Véronique Kanor; Hamedine Kane; Pascale Obolo; Elom 20ce; Brice Ahounou; Wasis Diop; Roger Raspail; Julius-Amedee Laou; Jean-Jacques Dufayet; Mylène Mauricrace; Maboula Soumahoro; Elsie Haas; Amandine Nana; Franck Biyong; Hemley Boum; Christian Nyampeta; Christelle Oyiri; Célia Potiron; Anna Tjé; Annouchka de Andrade; Tommie McKenzie; R22 tout-monde and many more.

——-

From 5-9 May 2021, Chimurenga’s Pan African Space Station (PASS) will land at Lavoir Moderne Parisien in Goutte d’or, Paris, to imagine, re-examine and re-circulate sonic archives of black radicalism in the francophone world. This session will dig into the “soundtrack” (bande-son), an underlying container of information and ideas that seldom gets explored on own terms.

We depart from cinematic practice, specifically films/filmmakers (Julius-Amedee Laou, Elsie Haas, Med Hondo, Kanor sisters, Sarah Maldoror, etc) represented in the printed archive we recently installed in Centre Pompidou, and expand the soundtrack beyond the screen to other areas of knowledge production: the street, the club, recording studios, kongossa, live performances, noise, even the magazine page.

We imagine a live in-studio soundtrack that responds to and expands silent footage from the 2nd Congress of Black Writers and Artists in Rome 1959 – an event charged by the-then process of decolonisation and the unwelcome presence of younger, radical thinkers such as Fanon, Beti, Glissant, Beville and more. We follow cues from Fabienne and Véronique Kanor’s “La noiraude” and explore zouk as aesthetics of black transnationalism – a geography of unauthorised pleasure throughout the 1980s. We listen to Sarah Maldoror’s records collection and her use of music on film.

In Julius-Amedee Laou’s “Solitaire a micro ouvert”, the brother of a man killed in a racist murder in Paris of the 1980s takes over of a black radio station to address the “community”. In “La Vieille Quimboiseuse et le majordome” he highlights the dialectic between the seen and the heard. We listen to the oral history of “La coordination des femmes noires” that writer Gerty Dambury continually produces; or Gerard Lockel’s development of gro ka moden as decolonial praxis; or the Paris-based afro/astrosonic network documented in the music Jo Maka, Ramadolf, Cheikh Tidiane Fall, Yebga Likoba and more, which not only connects directly to Maldoror’s film “Un dessert pour Constance” but also puts sound to the immigrant struggles of the post-May 68 era. And brings us to the ongoing gentrification and structural violence in Goutte d’or.

We consider Frank Biyong’s retelling of the war of decolonisation in Cameroun in his album “Ibolo Ini”, and more broadly his use of music as site of memorialising; and explore black ecologies through sound.

We present “Act 2” of Christian Nyampeta’s acclaimed radio-play “The Africans”.

And live performances, talks, screenings, DJ sets. And more.

Lets listen together. Daily programme at: panafricanspacestation.org.za

ASP: Artist Self-Publishers’ Fair

Following on from the previous fairs, we are hosting ASP6 The Sixth

ASP6 will host 100+ UK and international independent artist self-publishers for the one-day fair. The fair will feature artist self-publishers only, and will continue to avoid the restrictions and market dominance of much of contemporary arts culture.

ASP 6 will be taking place 100% online due to the current situation; large indoor gatherings such as the ASP Fair have obvious and unwelcome consequences.

On Saturday the 26th September we will be hosting a day of readings & performance and a live stream gig with very special guests T.B.A.

The fair itself will take place on the Sunday the 27th of September 2 - 7pm

We will shortly begin announcing the artist self-publishers taking part in this year's fair.

With the generous help of the Art Council England, ASP seeks to celebrate and promote artist self-publishers and their work.

In addition to those selected by ASP, 15 places will be allocated via open submission
For further updates and details please keep an eye on our website, Instagram or Facebook.

Printed Matter, Inc. , Impresionante • Feria de Publicaciones y Arte Impreso and Gato Negro have gathered a group of friends from within the print, activism, and art book community in both the United States and Latin America. The purpose of the panel is to discuss this moment and the strategies being used to confront, resist, and create.

Printed Matter, Inc. is an independent 501(c)(3) non-profit organization founded in 1976 by artists and art workers with the mission to foster the appreciation, dissemination, and understanding of artists' books and other artists' publications.

COVID-19 UPDATE:

Dear Miss Read community,
We hope you are all fine. As you probably know the Corona epidemic has reached Europe and the Rest of the world a few weeks ago.

The German government forbade public gatherings that bring together more than 50 people. It’s likely that the situation will get worse in the near future and the government won’t allow any public gathering before the epidemic progression is reversed.

We regret to inform you that Miss Read cannot take place at HKW on June 5–7, 2020 as planned, since we can’t guarantee the safety of the event and everyone involved.

We are currently investigating possibilities in which framework Miss Read is going to happen this year, and how we can take the program online. This includes this years focus on publishing practices from the African continent and African diaspora as well as the Conceptual Poetics Day.

We are planning to produce a publication and distribute it to all (would-be-) participants and to make it available to anyone interested. Please subscribe to our newsletter for updates regarding this: http://missread.com/contact

Stay tuned for further news, and above all, keep caring and stay healthy!

Artist’s Book as a Term Is Problematic -

“Artist’s book” as a term is problematic because it ghettoizes, enforces the separation from broader everyday practices and limits the subversive potential of books by putting an art tag on them. A book is a sequential collection of pages, loose leaf or bound, and it is circulating in multiple...
