Born in 1954 in Zanzibar, Himid was raised in Britain where she became a pioneer of the British Black Arts Movement in the 1980s. She was awarded the Turner Prize in 2017. Einashe met Himid on the occasion of her first major show in France, Gifts to Kings, which was exhibited at MRAC in Sérignan.

In this episode of the TANK magazine podcast, Natasha Stallard speaks to the artist and writer James Bridle about his new book, New Dark Age: Technology and the End of the Future. Published by Verso, the book tackles how contemporary technology has led us into a world of ever-increasing incomprehension. From climate change to the nightmarish world of children’s YouTube, we are living in a new Dark Age, which requires, Bridle writes, “acknowledging such contradictions and uncertainties, such states of practical unknowing, in order to move forward.” It is not only technology that changes the world, but how we choose to understand it.
