WE ARE HERE BECAUSE OF THOSE THAT ARE NOT
Danielle Brathwaite-Shirley

London and Berlin-based Black trans artist, activist, game developer and mother Danielle Brathwaite-Shirley shares their recent work “We Are Here Because of Those That Are Not”—a film and performance centered on remembering Black Trans ancestors who have been forgotten to time, as well as installing Black Trans existence in the present. Brathwaite-Shirley use electronic sound and animation to create a virtual archive for Black Trans bodies who were wrongly archived or never archived at all. By applying their own lived experience to imaginatively retelling Trans stories, the artist reclaim space for their forgotten forebears.
