Gabriella Nugent | Colonial Legacies

Gabriella Nugent | Colonial Legacies

In Colonial Legacies, Gabriella Nugent examines a generation of contemporary artists born or based in the Congo whose lens-based art attends to the afterlives and mutations of Belgian colonialism in postcolonial Congo. Nugent analyses artworks, and demonstrates how their practices create a new type of visual record for the future. “I have always thought that the concerns addressed by the artists in my book were pressing, but it has been interesting to see them pushed to the forefront of art history, as well as museums and other institutions,” she states.

Fiction plays a key role in shaping the image of social groups within societies?

Go and read Versfeld! His philosophy develops this basic orientation in an ethics of simplicity, in critique of injustice, often with irony and humor, but without ever being frivolous.

Bruno Yammine | Fake news in oorlogstijd

Bruno Yammine | Fake news in oorlogstijd

Ik hoop dat de lezer met een kritischere blik dan voorheen feiten bestudeert. En ook: dat hij/zij zich realiseert dat wat een gemeenschap vorm geeft, nationalistische verhalen, in grote mate een nevenproduct is van propaganda.
