PASS LANDING AT THE SHOWROOM, LONDON

PASS LANDING AT THE SHOWROOM, LONDON

In the first week of October (7-11) 2015, PASS presented a live broadcasting programme of music, interviews and events with Chimurenga collaborators, The Otolith Collective (Kodwo Eshun and Anjalika Sagar), in London.

Areas of interest included the work of photographer George Hallett – who used the book jacket and record sleeve as a curated exhibition space during the apartheid era; a critical look at the concept of and crude distinction drawn between Sub-Saharan and Arab Africa; and FESTAC ’77, the Second World Black and African Festival of Arts and Culture held in Lagos from 15 January to 12 February 1977. Ideas, thinking and debate moved fluidly between events, environments, broadcasts, music and sound recordings, publications, archive material and objects. Bringing together existing work, research material and areas of interest whilst at the same time expanding focal points, the project represented a moment of activation, interaction and expansion within a mobile and complex network of geographical and organisational contexts.

Participants in the programme included: Agency for Agency, Christine Eyene, Shabaka Hutchings, Dego (2000 Black), Pass Me the Microphone (Amanprit Sandhu and Hansi Momodu-Gordon), Sorryyoufeeluncomfortable, Larry Achiampong, John Akomfrah, Phoebe Boswell, Paul Bradshaw, Ekow Eshun, Ros Gray, Henriette Gunkel, Ayesha Hameed, Anthony Joseph, Michael McMillan, Christian Nyampeta, James Currey, George Shire, Pinise Saul, Kemang Wa Lehulere, Esa Williams, Tom Skinner and Matthew Temple.
