On the Power of Representation (2018-2020)

On the Power of Representation is a video installation with fragments of historic and recent moments in media that touch on the representation of the black body. The use of found-footage creates a better understanding of the history of racism and representation, as I used iconic or recognisable fragments in media. I started this video as an experiment to give historical context to the projects Re(present)ation and #BLACKGIRLMAGIC and the video keeps evolving in new forms. In its current form, the video was created for Docfeed Film Festival (2019) as a part of my graduation project IK ZIE ALLEEN MAAR KLEUR.
