  • Info:Afrofuturism. What is it? Is it an African re-appropriation of Marinetti’s artistic movement, or rather an avant-garde hairstyle fashion sported by black hipsters? It is evident that the composite character of the term carries an elasticity that makes even the oddest interpretations possible. The two components of the term refer both to the vague Western cultural imaginary of Africa, with echoes of Conrad’s colonial darkness that amalgamate the diversity of an entire continent into an ominous space, and to Futurism understood as an avant-garde movement, and, more to the point, as a general orientation towards the future.
