DIASPORA MIXTAPES is a series of digital portraits, that celebrate the diversity of black cultural identity in the contemporary African Diaspora. Activists, artists, poets and musicians share and explore ideas around black life, futurity, fugitivity, (de)colonialism and kinship.

The extensive archive consists of autobiographies, personal narratives and video documentations that recognise and acknowledge an array of experiences, that stretch out across the diaspora, with a special focus on the nordic countries in Volume 1.

Filmed in Johannesburg, Helsinki, Stolzenhagen and Bergen.

15min loop, English subtitles.


Of Nigerian and Finnish descent, Ima Iduozee is a choreographer, performer and filmmaker based in Helsinki.
