The Wretched of the Screen / 2019

Goodman Gallery Cape Town, 3rd Floor Fairweather House 176 Sir Lowry rd, Woodstock

The group show “The Wretched of the Screen” brings together the works of six artists – Thabiso Sekgala, Candice Breitz, Mikhael Subotzky, Hank Willis Thomas, Hasan and Husain Essop – who engage in methods for documenting and counteracting the politics of the screen. The exhibit – titled after Hito Steyerl’s eponymous text – explores Steyerl’s proposition that contemporary coherent political projects are fragmented and displaced by their transference onto screens and the ways in which bodies, identities and places are depicted on screen filter into “objective” reality, allowing for the biases, misconceptions and outward prejudice of media producers to pervade daily life, and to lock in place pernicious stereotypes.
