Rebekah Ubuntu is a London-based performance and sound artist who mines the tensions between class, queerness and rebellion for their work. Inspired by Afro-futurism, electronic music and radical transfeminist authors, Rebekah presents an inimitable worldview that challenges on sonic, social and subversive levels.

For Culture&’s ‘Cyborgs’ programme at the Wellcome Collection in March 2018, Rebekah presented ‘Are You There?’, an Afrofuturist sound, video and performance work exploring unbelonging, questing and intersectional utopianism through the speculative gaze of an artificially intelligent cyborg.
