Where Is Our Black Avant Garde?


Where Is Our Black Avant Garde?
On Creating a New Canon, and Responding to Old Denials
By Zinzi Clemmons

“Experimental: that which breaks with the doctrinaire and lets the previously unimaginable happen. Sometimes the wolf arrives in sheep’s clothing.” What is “experimental” or “avant garde” cannot be defined statically; as categories they are constituted subjectively, relative to the era and context within which the art appears. Alexander notes in the opening to her essay that Langston Hughes’s jazz poems were considered radically innovative when first published; we now take the form for granted.

Like Du Bois, the New Negro Renaissance is not typically recognized as part of the avant-garde. Literature by black writers is “black literature” or “African American literature”. Poetry is “black poetry.” Beginning in the early 20th century and continuing to today, these artists have been put into separate categories based on race. Although this might seem fine because it meant they had a whole category for themselves, what it really did was isolate black writers and keep their work from being acknowledged within the avant-garde. This categorization produces what Anthony Reed calls a “racialized reading,” which distinguishes writing by black authors by only a few narrow definitions and does not leave room for much exploration (7).

Black Artists and the Avant-Garde

The only way for there to be accurate portrayal of what the avant-garde embodied in the 1900s is to include those who were left in the shadows and to elevate the works of people from all backgrounds—not just the white default.

BLACK BANDCAMP
https://www.blackbandcamp.info/


With clubs worldwide at a standstill, we ‘travel’ to NY to revisit one of the best-remembered parties and labels, Wierd.
DJ and artist Pieter Schoolwerth started Wierd as a club night in 2003, to program what he defined as “very rare” music, amalgamating 80s wave and postpunk culture.

These days it’s difficult to think of like-minded people who aren’t aware of each other. Wierd was very much about bringing together the old who were never able to be under one roof, and the new that could continue on with the same mindset that they had. It was such a small place that when the band finished you were left with one foot on the stage, and the other on the most uneven concrete floor. It was too foggy to really know how many people were there but those who made it out are still out

Marvel represents all the things to be cherished about DJ’s, knowledgeable, never self-complacent, unpredictable, without all the downs e.g. not being an egomaniacal psycho. A walking encyclopedia, well versed in everything from metal to Japanese techno, his insatiable dedication regularly brings up the goods from unseen corners, finding gold in the detritus, romance in the despair. Vasilis co-hosts the yearly getaway Healthy Summer, a Crete festival running stronger than ever 13 years its inception.
