REMEMBERING DIS(RE)MEMBERING: From the Power of Black to the Power of Bling: A comic art exploration of intergenerational memory

How do we remember our painful past? Must we even remember? Has a great silence taken over after our great loss? How do we, those born in the dying throes of a great horror, remember something we have not quite experienced?

How can we retain something sacred when so much seems to be desecrated by our own understandable need to celebrate victories and achievements?

The heavy loneliness of pain, the sharp prick of poignant memory, the urge to mourn- these journeys of our affect have been disrupted, quashed, or just slowly edged out further and further from public view by the onward march of time.

Many South Africans have had to banish themselves into an internal exile to overcome a psychic dissonance between past and present.

Over the coming weeks, we will share with followers of Khulumani’s website, a series of comic art images developed by four young South Africans with the Khulumani Support Group on the complex and fragile relationship between past and present; old and young; remembering and forgetting; present and future; mourning and healing.

The creators of this exhibition are Sani Singaphi, a visual artist and musician from Port Elizabeth; Bulelani Booi, a graphic artist and member of the music duo WORDSUNTAME; Nomalanga Mkhize, a historian activist from Grahamstown; and Xolile Madinda, a community youth and education activist, from Fingo, Grahamstown.
