Interdisciplinary artist and writer Coco Fusco is one of North America's leading interpreters of intercultural theory and practice. The Bodies That Were Not Ours- gathers Fusco's finest writings since 1995, and includes critical essays by Jean Fisher and Caroline Vercoe.
Engaging and provocative, this collection of essays, interviews, performance scripts and foto novelas takes the reader on a tour of our current multicultural landscape. Fusco explores such issues as Frantz Fanon's theorization of metropolitan blackness, sex tourism in Cuba as a barometer of the island's entry into the global economy, and artistic and net activist responses to the effects of free trade on the Mexican populace.
Fusco, whose previous publications include English is Broken Here (New Press, 1995) and Corpus Delecti (Routledge, 1999) interviews such postcolonial personae as Isaac Julien, Hilton Als and Tracey Moffatt. Approaching the dynamics of cultural fusion from many angles, Fusco's satires, commentaries and sociological inquiries collapse boundaries, forming a sustained meditation on how the forces of globalisation impact upon the making of art.
Coco Fusco reads extracts from The Bodies That Were Not Ours-, and will be appearing in conversation with writer and film-maker John Akomfrah.
