Produced as the culmination of the first Feminist Internet Residency by artist Ama Ogwo, Memestrilism is a film that explores the digitisation of minstrelsy and the ventriloquism of Blackness online. Working with found footage from social media and the minstrel shows of the 20th century Ama collapses time to illustrate how racism has taken on a new but familiar form in the digital age. 

Ama Ogwo is a mixed media artist, whose practice is concerned with aspects of Black Identity, Black Individuality, and Black Experience, within physical and digital spaces. She was the first Feminist Internet Resident supported by the University of the Art’s London’s Creative Computing Institute.
