Renowned as the founding member of the Black Audio Film Collective, John Akomfrah's films come-art house documentaries often explore the personal and collective experience of African Diaspora in post colonial Europe and the UK. His films touch a sentiment in our society that tends to remain flagged as 'politically incorrect' or simply brushed under Britain's 'all inclusive policies'.
Akomfrah is somewhat of an archeologist of our present; haunting archival footage only to recompose it throughout multi-screen projections, accompanied by vividly narrative voice overs.

As part of Frieze Projects, John Akomfrah will talk about his latest film trilogy: The Airport, Auto de Fé and Tropikos (2016), which were premiered in Lisson Gallery London.
