Arthur Jafa

A Series of Utterly Improbable, Yet Extraordinary Renditions

ISBN: 9783960981589 (HB - E)

Across three decades, Jafa has developed a dynamic, multidisciplinary practice ranging from films and installations to lecture-performances and happenings that tackle, challenge and question prevailing cultural assumptions about identity and race. Jafa's work is driven by a recurrent question: how might one identify and develop a specifically Black visual aesthetics equal to the 'power, beauty and alienation' of Black music in US culture? The publication builds upon Jafa's image-based practice through the cutting and juxtaposing of visual sequences across its pages. A rich compendium of texts, both fiction and nonfiction, selected by Jafa, give an expanded picture of the many different inspirations and sources that lie behind his work.
