AFROPUNK x 198 Contemporary Arts and Learning Present: People Art Resistance

People Art Resistance is a zine and exhibition produced by AFROPUNK London and 198 Contemporary Arts and Learning. The zine challenges young creatives including commissioned artists from 198 CAL’s multidisciplinary art programme and open submission artists to respond to Black British resistance – past, present, and future. For source material artists explored both 198 CAL and Tate Britain archives as well as drawing inspiration from their own personal struggles, exploration of cultural roots and the broader context of global black resistance. The zine created over 4 weeks, with the support of the Arts Council of England, will be distributed freely throught the festival. The exhibition which includes the original artworks contributed to the zine will be open to public at 198 Contemporary Arts and Learning during AFROPUNK London Festival September 3rd – 7th 2018.
