520    "Though he has worked in film and music for decades, 
       American video artist Arthur Jafa only garnered acclaim in
       the art world in 2016 for his video work Love is the 
       Message, the Message is Death. Composed of found images 
       and videos, his oeuvre revolves around Black American 
       culture, the history of slavery, and ongoing structural 
       and physical violence against Black Americans. As Jafa put
       it in his 2003 text 'My Black Death': 'The central 
       conundrum of black being (the double bind of our 
       ontological existence) lies in the fact that common misery
       both defines and limits who we are. Such that our efforts 
       to eliminate those forces which constrain also function to
       dissipate much which gives us our specificity, our 
       uniqueness, our flavor by destroying the binds that define
       we will cease to be, but this is the good death (boa 
       morte) to be embraced.' This essential overview presents 
       Jafa's best-known works, such as Love is the Message, the 
       Message is Death and its 2018 follow-up piece The White 
       Album, alongside never-before-seen projects and essays by 
       notable scholars."--Publisher's website.
