BUFU: Our Selves, Our Stories, and Our Futures

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

We are the archive. Our bodies, our minds, and our hearts are technologies and storytelling tools more advanced and complex as any. We have been gathering stories for the past three years about Black & Asian cultural and political relationships around the globe and in this session will be sharing (for the first time) a pilot of an interactive installation of our multimedia documentary. Our intention is to implicate and activate all who participate vs just consuming the stories being presented.

BUFU is a collaborative living archive centered around (pan)Black and (pan)Asian cultural and political relationships. We, the founders of this project, are a collective of queer, femme and non-binary, Black and East-Asian artists and organizers. Our goal is to facilitate a global conversation on the cultural contact between Black & Asian diasporas, with an emphasis on building solidarity, de-centering whiteness, and resurfacing our deeply interconnected and complicated histories. We attempt to achieve this through our collaborative programming, our visual archives, and through building long-term partnerships with collectives, organizations, and individuals., BUFU
