Ancestors returning again / this time only to themselves is a site-specific art installation by Black Quantum Futurism at the Hatfield House of Fairmount Park Conservancy.
The installation debuts Black Quantum Futurism’s film Write No History (2021), presented as a video and sound installation inside Hatfield House’s ground floor rooms. Write No History features found and archival footage of The Temporal Disruptors, members of an ancient secret society of Black scientists, healers, and writers transporting a “quantum time capsule” between the future, past, and present. The Hatfield House in Fairmount Park is transformed into a gallery of artifacts and found objects from the secret society.
