The meeting with a true visionary will close this year's Locarno Talks la Mobiliare. Over the past thirty years, video artist and cinematographer Arthur Jafa has explored the themes of African-American identity and experience, both in his own work and in collaborations with some of the most important artists on the contemporary American black scene, from Spike Lee to Jay-Z. His practice, guided by a spirit of resistance, is a tireless research aimed at revealing injustices and learning from the lessons of the past to build a better future.
