Footnotes to a Monument

On Archival Violences

About

A film-collage commission for eflux’s Monuments series in collaboration with Het Nieuwe Instituut. The film combines archival footage, pop-culture media, dictionary definitions, news headlines and Wikipedia entries to unravel the tentacles of some of South Africa’s stagnant (but still very present) Apartheid and colonial monuments.

The film proposes a series of tactics ranging from the oral, the aural, the embodied and performance from indigenous knowledges and present-day protests as counterpoints to reimagine these monuments from.
