Exhibition: "Journeys with the Initiated" at e-flux

From the early 1970s and into the following decade queer German novelist, poet, and self-taught ethnographer, Hubert Fichte, made several journeys to research the daily lives and religious practices of Afro-diasporic communities in Benin, Senegal, Brazil, and the US among other places. During this period Fichte attempted to create a new ethnology that would run counter to an academic and colonial model.
Taking Fichte’s writing as a starting point, the exhibition Journeys with the Initiated unfolds along two registers and is presented at two different exhibition spaces: The first is a reading room featuring selected texts, photographs, and other documents that contextualize Fichte’s sojourn in New York. The second component includes a selection of existing and works across video, sculpture, performance, and sound by contemporary artists that offer perspectives on themes raised by Fichte.
