To challenge hegemonic archives, and with them the representations of Blackness inhabiting these very spaces, is to struggle for connection, voice, language, not least for images. Even more so in a time and space in which the stickiness of a colonial past is dismissed. Dealing with the hauntings and echoes of Austria’s colonial past, Belinda Kazeem-Kamiński – visual artist, writer, and recipient of the Camera Austria Prize 2021 – sets the stage for the what-if, while confronting viewers with the violence of the Western gaze. Introducing readers to a multiplicity of voices – artists, thinkers, and scholars with whom she is in conversation and communion – the artist’s catalogue opens a space for Black diasporan artistic practices. Here, the reverberating echoes and residues of a past ongoing become visible as effects in what we have come to call “the present”.
