On 6 May 2018, Kunsthal Kade in Amersfoort hosted a conversation between Zahira Asmal and Dr Wayne Modest, head of the Research Center for Material Culture titled, “Widening the Scope of History & Memory” on ways which history is memorialised in museums and public space.
Zahira presented her paper titled, “Visibility & Voice in the Creole City” which was published in the Tell Freedom exhibition catalogue (Kunsthal Kade). Thereafter Zahira and Wayne had a robust discussion on ways in which history is memorialised in museums and public space. They talked about the documentation and dissemination of marginalised histories, and ways in which a more vital and inclusive memory of history may be made for the public.
