Lamin Fofana lives and works in Berlin, Germany. Fofana is an artist and a music producer. Fofana’s instrumental electronic music contrasts the reality of our world with what's beyond and explores questions of movement, migration, alienation and belonging. Lamin’s overlapping interests in history and contemporary circumstances, and his practice of transmuting text into the affective medium of sound, manifests in multi-sensory live performances and large-scale minimal installations featuring original music compositions, field recordings and archival material. Lamin established the SCI-FI & FANTASY music imprint in 2012. Releases include Another World (2015); Brancusi Sculpting Beyonce (2018); and Black Metamorphosis (2019). Recent exhibitions and performances include Akademie Schloss Solitude, Germany (2019); 57th Venice Biennale, Italy (2017); and Documenta 14, Germany and Greece (2017).
