You are warmly invited to the first chapter in a cycle curated by Kandis Williams of Cassandra Press at Page Not Found!
In this first gathering we will connect with Collective X, who published the poetry zine “Blackity Black Black Black” on the occasion of Cassandra Press’ LUMA Westbau exhibition in 2021. Kandis Williams will engage in conversation with Collective X members Meloe Gennai, Titilayo Adebayo and Deborah Macauley.
Collective X is a collective of Black Trans and Queer people with multiple faces. They are artists and creators of spaces and narratives. Art allows them to form a community and survive, sharing through exhibitions, readings, workshops, meetings and performances in respect of their identities, their limits and in community love. The Collective X speaks French, German, Italian, Creole, English… because it was formed by Afro-Swiss and Afro-French people, it aims to speak as many languages as trajectories, and to promote artistic exchanges in the Black and Queer diaspora of the universe.
The poetry zine “Blackity Black Black Black” will be available for sale at a price of €15 with 100% of the proceeds going to the collective.
For those who cannot join IRL there's a livestream available.
This is a free event.
