‘What we’re trying to do in this work is to continue that trajectory of looking at texts from let’s say, a modernist period, like Césaire, writing about African objects, that first encounter of poets and writers from the diaspora responding. And thinking about that conversation now, which is a very different one.’ – Isaac Julien
