Locations of the M/othership: Black Women as Fugitive Archetype of Resistance
A live audio/visual installation using images of subversive and legendary Black women and excerpts from sci-fi films and TV series. Ajalon explores the intersection of Black women’s representations and subjective identities as simultaneously a site of both resistance and possible futures. The trick is to elucidate her space in history and beyond as an archetype of resistance not solely against oppressive forces but also for future worlds which allow for fluid ‘free’ existences.
Reviews
"Recommended. Works well as a means to generate discussion and explore the various representations and identities African American women have portrayed. This film would be useful in college library collections for use in a variety of courses, such as film studies and women's studies." - Educational Media Reviews Online
