Cameroon-born philosopher, academic and social theorist Professor Achille Mbembe delivered a public keynote address at the Hiddingh campus last week, part of the Between the Lines symposium held at the Gordon Institute for Performing and Creative Arts (GIPCA) at Hiddingh Hall.
Mbembe used the opportunity to discuss the idea of translation as a metaphor to understand how we confront the other and move beyond racism towards a more humane society.
Between the Lines invited 10 artists and 30 art students to reflect on innovative artistic research that engages with translation and mediation across social and cultural difference. It is a joint project of the Hochschule für Bildende Künste, Braunschweig, Germany, and UCT's Michaelis School of Fine Art.
