The recent happenings around statues, streets, institutions, etc. that honour colonial terrorists brought me back to this space. It’s been a minute since I last posted something that wasn’t related to the promotion of an event but it’s my intention to bring this site back to what I had in mind for it.
If you can read Dutch, here are two older pieces (both written for OneWorld) that briefly outline my take on the matter of praising colonizahs in public spaces. Click here for “Colonial terrorists don’t deserve to have street signs” (originally published on October 30, 2018) and here for my piece about why Witte de With, center for contemporary art, should change its name (originally published on September 17, 2017).
For those who can’t read Dutch… there will be some English pieces coming your way soon.
