BENITA BAILEY: #YELLIT - CONVERSATIONS WITH BLACK ARTISTS
Co-produced with Goethe-Institut Canada & hosted at the Goethe-Institut Toronto
The Goethe-Institut is collaborating with artist Benita Bailey (Berlin/Toronto) on four special editions of her social interview series Yellit, featuring German and Canadian Black artists. From September to December, you will encounter two Canadian and two German black arts leaders.
#yellit From The Mountain is an IGTV and YouTube show in which Benita Bailey introduces Black artists from Germany and Canada from her own artistic background: the performing arts. The 'Art(ist) Talks' revolve around the work and life of the artists and what currently moves them. The format is mostly bilingual: German and English, with subtitles. #yellit promotes the visibility of Black artists and their work and portrays Black positions from a Black and empowering perspective.
Part of the Goethe-Institut focus on 'Shaping the Past'/'Shaping the Future'
