As part of a Mario Pfeifer exhibition at Ludlow 38 New York City’s Lower East Side, Flatbush Zombies premiered a new video directed by the artist.  According to Pfeifer, “Conceived as a collaborative project, [‘Blacktivist’] reflects on police brutality, selective enforcement, and the right of self-defense. Scenes reminiscent of the aesthetics of conventional music videos come together with found footage, documentary shots, and 3-D animations to form a critical analysis of our times. At its core, #blacktivist asks how violence and repression are negotiated and reappraised in a supposedly post-racial society.”  FZ also revealed that the track is part of a new project due for release later this year.  Stream below via YouTube.
