'The Head & the Load' at London's Tate Modern Gallery

11-15 July 2018

“The Head & the Load is about Africa and Africans in the First World War - that is to say about all the contradictions and paradoxes of colonialism that were heated and compressed by circumstances of the war. It is about historical incomprehension, inaudibility and invisibility. The colonial logic towards the black participants could be summed up by: ‘Lest their actions merit recognition, their deeds must not be recorded.’ The Head & the Load aims to recognise and record.”
