Malika Imhotep at Cosmic Mumbo Jumbo

The incredible Malika Imhotep will be discussing media platforms as tools for personal expression, image making, and archival preservation at the screening of Cosmic Mumbo Jumbo on June 29th!

From the website:

Cosmic Mumbo Jumbo is anchored in the esoteric musings of Snake Doctor, an artist, philosopher, and public figure in his Leimert Park neighborhood of Los Angeles. The screening includes segments from the public access television show he hosted of the same name, created and produced by Adah Glenn (aka AfroPuff™), which aired between 1997 and 2007. Danielle Dean and Dineo Seshee Bopape’s experimental video works appear as pseudo-commercials between episodes of Cosmic Mumbo Jumbo, serving as call and response-like interventions into Snake Doctor’s mental landscape. Oscillating between candid sermons and hypnotic meditations, the works probe and explode familiar narratives of politics, capitalism, self-transformation, conspiracy theories, and the secret stories carried by objects and people.
