Autograph ABP's Mark Sealy in conversation with Bruno Boudjelal, about his exhibition Frantz Fanon and accompanying new photography book Vanishing into Reality. After the talk, join us for an exhibition wine reception and book signing.
Sealy and Boudjelal will be introduced and joined by curator Renée Mussai.
Frantz Fanon is an installation of 23 photographs mapping the contours of postcolonial thinker Frantz Fanon's life, through a series of fleeting images, shadowy figures and ghostly apparitions. Commissioned by Autograph ABP, the series reflects Boudjelal's serch for reliable traces of past histories and the imprint of memory.

'This series is based on Frantz Fanon; a Martinique born French-Algerian psychiatrist, philosopher, revolutionary and writer whose work is influential in the fields of post colonial studies. I felt it was important, at a point where Algeria is celebrating its fiftieth birthday, to consider the thoughts and life story of the author of “The Wretched of the Earth” (1961). His relation with Algeria, his position as one of the most important post-colonial thinkers, and finally the story of his journey as a human being.'
- Bruno Boudjelal
