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.
