Madness and Civilisation. Exhibition by Kudzanai Chiurai. Mail and Guardian, 11 May 2018
Madness and Civilisation: Kudzanai Chiurai’s ongoing interest in the cyclical nature of struggle, liberation and freedom is brought to light in Madness and Civilisation. The exhibition takes its title from Michel Foucault’s book, Madness and Civilization: A History of Insanity in the Age of Reason. For Chiurai, the ideas in this work relate to a central concern of his: Was the colonial project of “cultural disarmament” so effective that Africa will never be able to imagine a future that has not been predetermined by its colonial past?
Details: The exhibition takes place until May 12 at the Goodman Gallery, 176 Sir Lowry Road, Foreshore, Cape Town. Admission is free.
