Black Quantum Futurism Collective is a multidisciplinary collaboration between Camae Ayewa (Rockers!; MMGZ) and Rasheedah Phillips (The AfroFuturist Affair; Metropolarity) exploring the intersections of futurism, creative media, DIY-aesthetics, and activism in marginalized communities through an alternative temporal lens. BQF Collective has created a number of community-based events, experimental music projects (ANTI-KY-THE/RA released on Deep White Sound label), zines (NonLocality Series; Sun Ra, Synchronicity, and Superposition), and two anthologies of experimental essays on space-time consciousness (Vol 1 featured in the Unveiling Visions exhibition at Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture). BQF Collective is a 2016 A Blade of Grass Fellow for the Community Futures Lab project, 2015 artist-in-residence at West Philadelphia Neighborhood Time Exchange, and had their experimental short, Black Bodies as Conductors of Gravity, premiere at the 2015 Afrofuturism Now! Festival in Rotterdam.
