Rosa-Johan Uddoh - Practice Makes Perfect
Interdisciplinary artist Rosa-Johan Uddoh presents her first publication, which further develops her practice exploring the effects of Black British popular culture on self-formation. Responding to current debates about black history within the National Curriculum and urban space, she looks at how particular characters perform (and produce) the “Black British” identity. Interweaving scripts, sheet music, and instructional worksheets developed together with secondary school students, Uddoh encourages readers to insert their own experiences and interpretations of childhood education. The book examines popular ideas of the British nation and how this forms British subjects.
