'The Colonies and the Queen' Edition

(Part of the Discussions Collection)​

As a part of the collection, this edition consists of works that highlight the conversations on Twitter after Queen Elizabeth II’s death on September 8th. Conversations/arguments between citizens of former British colonies (especially Africa) who are angry about the Monarchy’s lack of remorse for colonial atrocities. And supporters of the Monarchy who either believe it wasn’t the right time to bring up such conversations, and if one does, they should acknowledge her as a liberator than a perpetrator. The artist then deliberately shows these conversations with visuals and timelines of events that display the actual historical context they are based on to let the facts speak for themselves.
 
(The ‘Discussions Collection’ is a series of works where I highlight and question types and the needs for discussions based on situations that involve various dynamics of oppression.)
