Abstract

Abstract:

A statue of 19th-century British imperialist Cecil John Rhodes sat at the heart of the University of Cape Town's colonial façade until 9 April 2015, when it was removed after just one month of student protests known as the Rhodes Must Fall movement. The material alterations made to the body of the statue by protesting students unsettled the dominant epistemology of the university and public discourse by exceeding the bounds and logics of representational politics.
