On 30 August Framer Framed will host a conversation on erasure and the archive; an attempt to explore the ways in which women of colour, living and working in different locations, use the archive to pursue positionalities and narratives erased from the great Dutch historical canon. In trying to unpack the historical narratives of the ties between South Africa and the Netherlands, entrenched structural challenges are still evident, today.

The evening is an event in the context of the exhibition Re(as)sisting Narratives. The discussion will be moderated by Palesa Motsumi, founder of Sematsatsa Library.

With the contribution and inclusion of voices such as:

– Jennifer Tosch, Founder of Black Heritage Tours
 - Amsterdam & New York
Toni Stuart, writer & poet

Tazneem Wentzel, artist and member of Burning Museum Collective

The discussion is again an attempt to make sense of the ongoing political sensibilities evident in South Africa-born movements such as #RhodesMustFall, #FeesMustFall and in much of the works of other groups of women artists, some of whom have been quite outspoken about black people’s experiences as well as their own.

When: 30 August, 2016

Time: 20:00-22:00

Venue: Framer Framed at the Tolhuistuin
