Starting from her previous project – Letters From the Future, a space to inhabit future temporalities and look back at the present – curator and educator Sepake Angiama develops for the Free School, the School of Darkness. It offers a program and space to collectively train imagining the future, and to use this imagination as an empowering and political tool. Sepake Angiama is the initiator of Under the Mango Tree: Sites of Learning, operating through notions of unlearning, indigenous knowledge and forms of radical education practices that destabilize the European canon.

Traversing across art, architecture, writing and choreography, curator and educator Sepake Angiama's research, Her Imaginary, addresses how science fiction and feminism may harness the perfect tools for capturing a pedagogy of political and social imagination. Her projects include All good things must begin: A conversation between Audre Lorde and Octavia E. Butler at SBC Gallery, Montreal where she created a space for writing, screening, reflection & conversation on the topic of intersectional feminism, modernist architecture and science fiction. While a fellow at bak, Utrecht she created, We Summon All Beings here Present, Past & Future, a public library of personal publications addressing radical black thought, modernism and feminist theory. Sepake also conducts a series of public performance and workshops, Reading Out Loud, Letter from the Future & Feminist Readings from the Mistress House. Speculative Possibilities which brings together video artists and filmakers capable of imagining and combining alternatives, to suspend the interstitial possibilities of our time.Back to top
