Inspired by the lost plays of Frantz Fanon (1925-1961), a politically radical writer whose work investigates the mental distress of colonialism and the consequences of decolonisation, ‘Finding Fanon’ explores the relevance of his writing in an age of technology, popular culture and globalisation.
By hacking into Grand Theft Auto 5, the artists discover an expansive world to work within - yet it is underpinned by hidden systems of control, making it the perfect context to discuss Fanon’s writing by offering a pertinent metaphor for the insidious structures that govern our everyday experiences.
