Ayesha Hameed, SSHRC Post-doctoral Research Fellow (2011-12)
Ayesha Hameed lives in London, UK. Since 2013, Hameed’s multi-chapter project 'Black Atlantis' has looked at the Black Atlantic and its afterlives in contemporary illegalised migration at sea, oceanic environments, outer space and through Afrofuturistic dancefloors and sound systems. Through videos, audio-essays and performance-lectures, she examines how to think through sound, image, water, violence and history as elements of an active archive; and travelling back in time as a historical method. Recent exhibitions include Gothenburg Biennial, Sweden (2019); Lubumbashi Biennale, Democratic Republic of Congo (2019); and Dakar Biennale, Senegal (2018). She is a Lecturer in the Department of Visual Cultures.
