A film by Göran Hugo Olsson, The Black Power Mixtape is a brilliantly edited montage of lost 16mm footage shot by Swedish photographers in America from 1967-75; combined with audio interviews from some of today's leading African-American artists, activists, musicians and scholars; and set to a music by Grammy-winner Questlove. A special screening at MoMA is being held by our friends over at React to Film
Photographer Andreas Gefeller's show at Hasted Kraeutler is a simple exercise in noticing patterns and complexities within simple situations. His "Japan Series" concentrates on the chaotic cluster of telephone poles that are ubiquitous in urban areas.
