“Creating a far-reaching and original dialogue between cultural theory and visual practice, the rich insights which emerge from this publication explain why Frantz Fanon’s seminal texts of the 1950s and 60s – Black Skin, White Masks and The Wretched of the Earth – have re-emerged at the forefront of postcolonial studies.
This collection of texts and dialogues work with Fanon’s ideas in understanding how narrative, the media, image, and symbol lie at the very heart of the practice of politics and social knowledge.
Originating from the symposium Working with Fanon held during the season Mirage: Enigmas of Race, Difference and Desire (ICA, London, 1995).”
