A collection of shorts and features whose curation was loosely inspired by two books (Hong Kong: Culture and the Politics of Disappearance by Ackbar Abbas and Intonations: A Social History of Music and Nation in Luanda, Angola, from 1945 to Recent Times by Marissa Moorman) and a couple of projects I’m working on. The state of the world and that great gift of free association also played their parts.
