Summary

A room containing 1000 questions about race, written by Selina Thompson in three sittings across 24 hours one weekend in Edinburgh. You’re invited to answer one of them.

65. Are you black, or are you ‘new black’?

170. What is the long term psychological impact of white supremacy on people of colour?

220. My mum does not talk about race anymore. It makes her uncomfortable, tired. Will this happen to me?

307. Why do people assume that racism will just passively die out if we wait long enough?

440. Are you angry?

541. What ever happened to Kony 2012?

660. Who is more problematic – famous racist Nigel Farage, or the liberal
journalist politely asking him questions?

720. When does it all end?

In this constantly evolving installation and archive, Thompson invites participants to supply their own answers to the many facets of race and racism in modern society.

“Thoughtful, generous, brave and unspeakably brilliant.” – Maddy Costa

Supported by Buzzcut, Forest Fringe and Fierce FWD. Seed commissioned by Camden People’s Theatre and Leeds Library through Room 700.

Supported at Heads Up Festival by the British Council.

Selina Thompson is a UK based artist, performer, and writer. Her practice is primarily intimate, political, and participatory, with a strong strand of public engagement that then leads to joyous, highly visual work that seeks to connect to those often marginalized by the arts.
