FRACTURED MEMORY

OGUTU MURAYA (KE/NL)

How can one deal with an inherited history that is full of complexity? Weaving together literary text, video and storytelling Ogutu Muraya reimagines the congress of Afro-intellectuals, writers, artists, philosophers and theorists, at the Sorbonne in Paris in 1956, described in James Baldwin’s essay Princes and Powers. Ogutu embraces a multiplicity of perspectives, historical archive
materials and personal experience. Examining the legacy of the congress, the performance shifts perspectives, seeking a new vocabulary for dealing with uncomfortable truths.

‘…it is with great pain and terror that one begins to assess the history that has placed one where one is, and formed one’s point of view.’
James Baldwin
