Mixtape with Rehana Zaman and Aditi Jaganathan

Sun 18 February 2018

As part of the exhibition programme for Speaking Nearby, Rehana Zaman and Aditi Jaganathan share a collection of references, music, words and visuals on and around the representation of women of colour in TV and Cinema.

Aditi is a PhD candidate at Brunel, University of London. With an MSc in Human Rights, Conflict and Justice from SOAS, she has worked with numerous Black and brown grassroots organisations to bring a holistic and nuanced approach to human rights advocacy and social justice.

Aditi’s current work looks at the nexus between Black and brown cultural production in Britain, with a particular interest in creativity as decolonial praxis. Through her PhD, she explores the ways in which Black and brown creativity, audio-visual culture specifically, interrupts narratives of British coloniality, from the 1980s to the present.

Aditi is passionate about eroding the boundaries that exist between different disciplines to create spaces, where multiple voices and experiences, can engage in conversation with each other.
