Abstract

Fatimah Tuggar creates computer montages that confront technological disparities by presenting rural Nigerian women and children juxtaposed with useless and fantasy-based technological devices. While several scholars contextualize Tuggar’s digital methods and her work’s relevance to Afrofuturism, I present her work from the perspective of an Africanist art historian by examining Tuggar’s theoretical and aesthetic relationship to Afrofuturism as a strategy that subverts ideas of “traditional” African art and culture.
