Join me on a journey into the world of philosophy and artistic movements as we navigate the challenges of our time. As a curious mind with a passion for music, art, and politics, I delve into the significance of movements like afro-surrealism, afro-pessimism, and afro-futurism. Through thought-provoking discussions, we'll explore the similarities and differences of these movements and what they currently reflect in our culture. Together, we'll challenge assumptions, ask the deeper questions of life, society, and politics, and forge a path forward using philosophy and artistic movements that push our worldviews. Don't miss out on the conversation - let's begin. FOLLOW ME ONLINE: 🤍 🤍 🤍 🤍 Hey, everyone!

What does the future look like for black people? Subscribe to our channel! 🤍 Video by: Gina Barton, Victoria Massie, and Joe Posner Black people are rarely featured in sci-fi and fantasy films — that is, unless that black person is Will Smith. How do black people get to exist in the future? Afrofuturism, a scholarly and artistic movement that imagines the future through black people’s experiences is one answer. The term was coined in 1994 by culture critic Mark Dery in his "Black to the Future" essay.

What is Afrofuturism? Subscribe to Inverse! 🤍 In February 2018, Marvel's Black Panther broke box-office records and elevated the phrase AfroFuturism to the forefront of the American lexicon. But AfroFuturism is a practice that goes far beyond the aesthetic of black people donning cool science-fiction-y costumes. It is a genre of speculative fiction that highlights what regular science fiction can't and won't. There is a glaring exclusion of black people from works of science fiction and an immense amount of real world problems that black people must face on a consistent basis. As such, one might think that black people would shy away from speculative fiction and instead opt to focus on the present. AfroFuturism is an artform, practice and methodology that allows black people to see themselves in future despite a distressing past and present. It calls upon sci-fi imagery and futuristic ideas to reflect upon the marginalization of black people. Practitioners conceptualize an array of visions of what a black future could look like. But what does that look like? We identified four unique AfroFuturist artists, who have used their work to imagine black life beyond its current state of global oppression. A 500 year history of colonialism, slavery, racism, and segregation have left people of the African Diaspora with a disjointed idea of what it really means to be at home. Visual Artist and Hip-Hop MC, Jessica Valoris uses speculative fiction and science fiction tropes to encourage people of the African Diaspora to "Phone Home." In her play "Enough Vo5 for the Universe" Melanie Goodreaux depicts a world 100 years into the future where God is a gender non binary black person. It is a vision of the future that celebrates black queer lives in spite of present day queer and transantagonism. A toxic soup of poverty, misogyny, anti-blackness, and transphobia leave black Transgender women and femmes at an exorbitantly high risk for being murdered. Black people are often caught in the ironic crosshairs of being hyper visible and invisible. Black women for example are often hypersexualized, leaving them at a greater risk for sexual assault and violence. Yet they have also been largely left out of conversations around sexual violence even following the rise of 2017's MeToo movement. Black people have been engaging in Afrofuturism well before the term was coined in 1994. As long as the state of the black future is in jeopardy folks of the African diaspora will continue to imagine expansive ideas of black life in the past, present, and beyond. - Inverse sparks curiosity about the future. We explore the science of anything, innovations that shape tomorrow, and ideas that stretch our minds. Our goal is to motivate the next generation to build a better world. #inverse #afrofuturism #future 🤍

Ferenj is a graphic memoir in Virtual Reality on the meaning of home and identity—and one of the most interesting productions at DocLab 2020, the interactive and immersive program of the International Documentary Festival Amsterdam. Using photogrammetry, Ethiopian-American director Ainslee Robson reconstructs personal memories of both Cleveland and Addis Ababa. "Ferenj was born out of the need for a space to express my suppressed identity on my own terms as unapologetically and radically "normal" and to affirm to anyone else who relates to my story that we're out here, we exist, we are not invisible," commented Robson. If you have a VR headset at home, you can watch Ferenj on Viveport until the 6th of December: 🤍 ABOUT SUBMARINE CHANNEL Submarine Channel is an Emmy-award winning platform for all the people interested in stories told in innovative ways.

This video is about the origins of surreal art, and the many attempts to depict the unconscious mind. From apocalyptic dream art to impossible landscapes, fantastical painting has had a long history. As we explore the history of surreal art and proto-surrealism, we’ll see how Aboriginal Australians depicted the dreamtime, how renaissance illusionists like Arcimboldo tricked our minds into seeing faces, and how the rise of Artificial Intelligence (AI) art has changed our definitions of creativity. There’s plenty to discuss, so sit back and enjoy! If there are any artists or artworks you would like to learn more about, do let me know in the comments. There is so much to talk about when it comes to the bizarre visions of Salvador Dalí, or the haunting sketches of Odilon Redon. What would you like to see? Happy New Year!

Twitter ► 🤍 Patreon ► 🤍 Donald Glover’s show, “Atlanta,” is full of surreal imagery and dream sequences. The series finale is literally called, “It was all a dream” – centering around Darius repeatedly waking up from dreams. As Darius says in the episode, "maybe i’ve been in a dream this whole time." So logically, between all of the surreal imagery and dream sequences, it makes sense that many fans and articles have tried to figure out which of these surreal moments in "Atlanta" were “real” and which were “just a dream.” But questioning what is real or fake is actually not the question that the show wants its audience to think about. As a writer for "Atlanta" said on social media, people have to stop watching the show like it's a puzzle meant to be solved. So why shouldn’t the viewer care about what is or isn’t real within the show? Donald Glover (Earn) talked about this directly in an interview preceding Season 4 of Atlanta: “A lot of things this season we’re kinda asking “what is real?” The show doesn’t want its viewers to think about the simple question - was what we watched just a dream? But rather, uses surrealism and dream sequences to try and get at a larger question - is anything real? It’s the subtle but important distinction between ‘was that real’ and ‘what is real’? "Atlanta" is produced by FX Networks and stars Donald Glover as Earn Marks, Zazie Beetz as Vanessa "Van" Keefer, as Al Alfred "Paper Boi" Miles, and LaKeith Stanfield as Darius. Stephen Glover as co-executive producer and directly by Hiro Murai. Image credit: Aaron Kathman

Fourth and final season of Atlanta is rolling, here's a little tribute to my favorite character and what he brings to, as Donald Glover says, "the best show since the Sopranos". Wanted to give Lakeith Stanfield his flowers before the show comes to pass. Like a few other essays on here, Lakeith and Darius capture that messy absurdism, optimistic nihilism combo I love in art perfectly. And more than that I wanted to show how his character actually serves as a way to ground the audience and the show when it veers in and out of surrealism by giving a baseline of weirdness. Shoutout Darius, excited to see how this story ends. - Niche Nonsense is a video essay channel that takes nonsense seriously and explores cultural absurdity. #videoessay #nichenonsense #culture #atlantafx #darius #lakeithstanfield #donaldglover
