Title: The Ghosts of Songs: A Retrospective of the Black Audio Film Collective 1982 -1998. Curated by The Otolith Group

From the text: “curated and produced by Kodwo Eshun and Anjalika Sagar of The Otolith Group and designed by David Adjaye of Adjaye Associates The Ghosts of Songs is the first retrospective to explore the significance of BAFC’s entire body of work, it reveals the collective as dynamic, articulate artists, dedicated to engaging with the past, present and future of memory, media and moving image. The installation The Black Room will be reworked for the first time since 1996 and represented for a contemporary art audience by the artists. Archival material and documents that place the groups’ practice in the artistic, cinematic cultural and historical contexts of a changing Britain will also be presented.”
