On 6 October, the collaborative exhibition of HKU fellow Nancy Jouwe and The Black Archives, CAPE X UTRECHT opens at Akademiegalerie. The project dives into the relationship between the Cape colony and Utrecht. Despite recent Dutch apologies for slavery, its role in the colonization of South Africa remains unaddressed. Taking this as a starting point, the exhibition asks: Who remembers the history of Indian Ocean slavery? How does this history affect people in current-day South Africa? And why is this history largely forgotten?
