Playlist: DJ Amir's arkaoda warmup
Hip-hop historian DJ Amir shares some dancefloor heat.
An exploration of ‘Queer Love Across Island Imaginaries’ at Haus Der Kulturen Der Welt.
What does it mean to be queer in the Caribbean?
We’re working with HKW, filmmaker Phil Collins and Jamaican organisation Beyond Homophobia as the local media partner for Desire Lines, a long-term public artwork challenging narratives around LGBTQIA+ issues in Jamaica, Trinidad, and beyond.
From an intersectional perspective, Desire Lines examines “the consequences of anti-colonial and emancipatory struggles on the LGBTQIA+ community in Jamaica”, and asks, “how homophobic are dancehall and reggae?”
At a special event on August 19-20 at HKW, a wide range of multi-disciplinary contributors will engage in talks, discussions, performances, screenings, radio broadcasts, informal interactions and a dancehall party.
Join us at Oona for the pre-event hangout on August 18th, and be sure to tune in to the shows we are broadcasting before and after the event.
