Afrofuturism as a Safe Space for Radical Decolonizing
In Conversation with Natasha Becker
A new project in South Africa looks deeply and closely at art curation on the continent. Initiated by Natasha Becker, UNDERLINE is organizing twelve exhibitions as part of an umbrella event in which curators also discuss how they made their way into the profession, their joys and frustrations, their processes and strategies, and where they find agency and inspiration. Our author Mearg Negusse spoke to Becker about the current situation for independent curators and artists in the South African art scene.
On October 1st 2019 SWEAT (Sex Workers Education & Advocacy Taskforce) publicly called for the withdrawal of an artwork by convicted murderer Zwelethu Mthethwa from the exhibition “All in a Day’s Eye: The Politics of Innocence in the Javett Collection” at the UP-Javett Art Centre, University of Pretoria (Javett-UP), curated by Gabi Ngcobo in collaboration with the research team of Donna Kukama, Simnikiwe Buhlungu and Tšhegofatso Mabaso. Following a series of open letters by SWEAT and Ngcobo with the research team , the curator and her collaborators have now responded with the following statement. Sharing this is an invitation to reflect on and discuss the many complex issues raised by this debate.
