Ama Josephine Budge & Alberta Whittle: A Harem of Haunting Delicacies


Join Ama Josephine Budge and Alberta Whittle for a performative reading and collaborative conversation centred around Budge’s new text Fragments of Exercises For Learning How To Remember / To Member The Harems that Haunt Delicately.

This new work has been written in response to Whittle’s work and is published as part of our accompanying publication which is available in to view in the galleries, and purchase online and in DCA shop.

Ama Josephine Budge is a speculative writer, artist, curator and pleasure activist, whose work navigates intimate explorations of race, art, ecology and feminism, working to activate movements that catalyse human rights, environmental evolutions and troublesomely queered identities. She is a PhD candidate in Psychosocial Studies with Dr Gail Lewis at Birkbeck. Her research takes a queer, decolonial approach to challenging climate colonialism in Sub-Saharan Africa with a particular focus on inherently environmentalist pleasure practices in Ghana and Kenya.
