The narrative project, Heritage of the moment, questions what it means to be African in a time of constantly changing perceptions through fiction writing and image-making. Weaving influences from Africanfuturism, Africanjujuism* and sci-fi to explore, question and express heritage, culture, and traditions. In the form of two short stories, based on Africanfuturism and Africanjujuism, photography and collage work.
“Coming from a biracial background, my heritage is both colonised and coloniser. As such, the understanding of identity is complex and constantly in transition.”
As the blending of people and cultures continues to grow and expand, the population of biracial and multiracial individuals grows. Whether brought up within both, multiple or just one culture, there is a hunger, a curiosity to find out more. It is human nature to want to know more, to discover. Self-identity can be tied to different things for different people. However, culture and traditions can play a role in this. Embedded into parents and their upbringing, and their parents’ upbringing, their upbringing has ties to their heritage and traditions. Knowing about past traditions, cultures, and heritage can shed light and understanding into the matter of self-understanding and identification.
*Africanjujuism is a form of science-fiction. It respectfully acknowledges African spiritualities and cosmologies as a base for alternative imaging futures.
