NeuroSpeculative AfroFeminism by Hyphen-Labs

Plug In ICA is pleased to present a solo exhibition by the international collective Hyphen-Labs. Redefining the body is central to the imaginations of NeuroSpeculative AfroFeminism, a world where one can reconfigure their neuro-networks as a means of gaining access to an otherworldly realm in which power structures are inter-dimensionally twisted out of existence. This world is a hallucination built on the imagination of revolution; a revolt defined by women of colour who use the prosaic domain of the beauty salon as a rebel underground network for a radically new shared system of communication. NSAF is set in a future United States after the first amendment has been abolished, which ignites a movement of black women to form a band of resistance through a neurological technology that collects “communal memories and knowledge” in defiance of old and new systems of “cognitive tyranny.”
