Pan African Space Station at Freedom Park in Lagos, 23rd -26th of June 2016
The PASS pop-up studio as an intimate, improvisatory live space becomes one for entangling different realities and experiences – with participants and listeners prompted by ideas of utopia and oppression, history and the future, borders, time, art and technology. Recordings from the live sessions culminate in an archive of experiments: speaking, listening, playing, partying and community.
From June 23-26, PASS descends on Freedom Park in Lagos, as part of Goethe Institute’s Lagos_Live 2016 festival. The PASS Lagos sessions bring together a broad spectrum of artists, performers, writers and musicians, whose practices draw from a variety of contexts, to participate through conversations, performances and happenings that provoke us to rethink our histories and to speculate on our futures through artistic and cultural practice.
