About

Afrofuturism: real or abstract, its only the beginning 

Bongani Madondo, Neo Mashigo and Lebo Rasethaba in conversation 

 

The fourth Talking Art at Keyes series will see cultural theorist, art curator and journalist Bongani Madondo in conversation with M&C Saatchi CCO, Neo Mashigo and award-winning filmmaker, Lebo Rasethaba.


Afrofuturism as a 20th century cultural genre that subverted white-dominated sci-fi by placing black people at the centre of futuristic worlds - has exploded from art and science fiction into popular culture and mainstream media. Traversing divergent contexts from Hollywood films like Black Panther to local literary symposia and fast food advertisements, the subject continues to evolve and ignite debate.
