The Fugitive Image

What is driving artists to use vintage video footage as a source material to explore ideas of African diaspora identity and history? Is archive imagery a means to craft works grounded in authentic documentation of events? Or a way to create new fictions and new futures, from the fragments of the past? And what are the freedoms or constraints artists find in working with such elusive, fugitive images? Gaylene Gould (Head of Cinema and Events at British Film Institute) in conversation with artists NT, Appau Jnr Boakye-Yaidom and Onyeka Igwe.
