Fred Moten

This year’s Fórum do Futuro presents a film project developed in collaboration with the acclaimed poet and scholar Fred Moten, a seminal figure in African American studies and the debate about rights and reparation movements. Professor at the Department of Performance Studies of New York University, the Tisch School of the Arts, his works and critical theory have influenced an entire generation of thinkers, artists and activists, including several of the guests in this edition. Based on the themes addressed and questions raised by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Sônia Guajajara and Ernesto Neto, Danny Glover, Vandana Shiva, Arthur Jafa, and David Adjaye, Fred Moten will choose some excerpts from his work that will be presented in this film project, divided into small chapters to be displayed at the beginning of each session.
