THE CONUNDRUM OF COLONIAL MONUMENTS
The killing of George Floyd and the shocking and unbearable images of his death sparked numerous demonstrations of solidarity around the world. The recent tragic example of police violence against African Americans has led to a more global reflection on the display of monuments in public spaces, erected in honour of individuals who were active in the slave trade, and who upheld supremacist ideologies and colonialism. This discussion will address critical questions, such as the place of colonial monuments in public spaces, the function they fulfil in the life of the city, and what they say about today’s society.

Participants: Jennifer Tosch (founder of Black Heritage Tours Amsterdam & New York) and Kehinde Andrews (Professor of Black Studies at Birmingham City University).

May 14, 2021 07:00 PM in Brussels
