The 1995 project of Mirage: Enigmas of Race, Difference & Desire curated by David A. Bailey in collaboration with INIVA, examined the importance of Frantz Fanon's writings and protesting the absence of diversity in art. On the anniversary of that project, the symposium highlighted the questions and notions that were posed then, to consider them in relation to today. Looking at the practices of art and institutions according to decolonizing culture, identity and race. Asking, how to bring about more diverse representation and avoid the traps of a monoculture.
Art, and today the digital world, are and have been used as tools, to push boundaries, and create forms of resistance.
The panel finished the day referencing Fanon's relevance today, after some discussion, it was generally agreed, that, though the circumstances during Fanon's time have changed, the notion and ideas behind his writings are still prevalent and important. As a man named George from the audience expressed "Thinking with Fanon different to following Fanon".
