NO GUTS, NO GALAXY is a weekly series of artist-curated slideshows that expand upon the diverse subjects addressed in RAMMΣLLZΣΣ: Racing for Thunder, such as, the Downtown scene, early hip-hop and performance, Afrofuturism and cosmology, the mythology of Gothic Futurism, and the coercive power of language.
Event Description: Invoking Rammellzee’s Time Stoppers temporal displacement device, this is a ritual causality performance when memories will be re-encoded with new temporal information, and where Black Quantum Futurism will explore the equations of time that emerge from timeless degrees of freedom by entangling moving images with live sound experimentation and spoken text spellcasting.
Black Quantum Futurism is an interdisciplinary creative practice between Camae Ayewa and Rasheedah Phillips that weaves quantum physics, afrofuturism, and Afrodiasporic concepts of time, ritual, text, and sound to present innovative works and tools offering practical ways to escape negative temporal loops, oppression vortexes, and the digital matrix. BQF has created a number of community-based projects, experimental music projects, installations, workshops, books, short films, zines and more.
