Goldendean Plan B
- iwalewabooks, Bayreuth/Johannesburg
In July 2017 the South African Equality Court dismissed charges of Hate Speech against Goldendean’s exhibition of a poster using the words “Fuck White People” in the Iziko National Gallery. The Chief Mag-istrate found that the work’s context, as art, brought attention to structural racism and white suprema-cy, and drew South Africans to a “critical moment of self-reflection”. Goldendean presents PLAN B, A GATHERING OF STRANGERS (OR) THIS IS NOT WORKING, reflecting on the affects of their performance of very simple acts of dissidence in a transgressive Fat Queer White Trans Body. The book explores how strategies of Technology as self-reflection and Radical Sharing, Queer Love and Queer Disobedience contribute to “making white- ness strange” by destabilising the normal invisibility of whiteness to bring white bodies under surveillance.
