For Akademie Schloss Solitude’s fourth journal, Time After Time, I submitted an essay about the Mau Mau and the British military state’s documented atrocities that were withheld in various archives or destroyed, diminishing true accountability for these horrific acts.

The piece is titled What endures? (inspired by a question posed in Yvonne Owuor’s novel, Dust). The essay also features artwork by Osbourne Macharia.

Time After Time launches on November 30th, 2022 at Hopscotch Reading Room,gerichtstrasse 45, 13347 Berlin.

The Akademie Schloss Solitude is an international and transdisciplinary artist residency. Solitude Journal and special editions communicate the topics emerging from Akademie Schloss Solitude’s network.

The fourth iteration, Time After Time is based on the perceptions of time inscribed in and reproduced through colonial systems, as a decolonial approach to the length and/or parameters of time.

Writer and editor Dzekashu MacViban was invited to develop a theme for this edition with co-editors Jazmina Figueroa and Denise Helene Sumi.
