John Akomfrah’s multi-layered three-screen installation, The Unfinished Conversation (2012) is now on display at the Tate Modern Tanks.

Through his celebrated technique of juxtaposing and layering archive footage with text, music and photographs, Akomfrah crosses the memory landscape of Stuart Hall to reflect on the nature and complexities of memory and identity. 

The Unfinished Conversation was commissioned by Autograph ABP, it premiered at the Bluecoat during the 2012 Liverpool Biennial.
