Finding Fanon is a moving and multi-layered exploration of race, identity and globalisation inspired by the radical thinker Franz Fanon.
In Larry Achiampong and David Blandy’s collaborative practice, they share an interest in popular culture and the decolonial position. They examine communal and personal heritage, using performance to investigate the self as a fiction, devising alter-egos to point at their divided selves. The Finding Fanon trilogy (2015–17) blends personal histories, pop culture and post-colonial theory to examine how we navigate the digital and physical worlds of the twenty-first century.
