SECOND COMING— In collaboration with The Adversary, 'Second Coming' simulation pulled together individuals representative of the different factions of society; to discuss and explore the impact of inherited memory on the African-Caribbean diaspora.
With an introduction into the year 2119, on the quincentenary of the arrival of the first “20 and odd” africans in Jamestown, Virginia. Participants were divided into three groups under the guise of ‘African-Caribbean Philanthropists’, ‘The State Government’ and ‘Liberationists’ to construct supporting arguments for the deletion of genetic (inherited) memory using history facts as a resource to support their stance.
Simultaneously the other groups assume the role of potential clients, raising their concerns of the social, ethical and cultural implications.
Concluding the workshop as individuals, the discussion narrows to distinguish between cultural and individual memory and the personal choice to undergo the procedure.
