Enter Afrofuturism | 7-12 November 2017 |

As a term, Afrofuturism appeared in the 90s to describe an Afro-American artistic movement which had found expression in sci-fi, fantasy literature, music, the visual arts, comics and movies. Today, it is an inexhaustible field of academic, political, artistic and scientific investigation and production which incorporates elements from the black cultures from the diaspora of West Africa, North America, Britain and the Caribbean, creating a Black Atlantic map.
