Otobong Nkanga’s new performance Diaoptasia is an examination of acts of framing. Exploring the process of live editing, the artist’s body, sliding screens, slithers of text and the camera are devices that both cut the frame and create unlikely connections.
The performance is followed by a Q&A with the curator Catherine Wood at 09:35 including questions and comments from the audience received via Tate’s YouTube, Twitter and Facebook profiles.
Live streamed from Tate Modern, Thursday 26 November 2015, 20.00 GMT exclusively to audiences online.
