TRUE STORIES OF RESISTANCE - Inside a Fugitive Library
Cléophée R.F. Moser

In an effort to comment on the research that motivated the installation “True stories of Resistance,” Cléophée R.F. Moser chose to elaborate on the context in which this project was imagined and the echoes that resonated between the members of the Fugitive Library during the Commonings event on the question of the power relations at stake around knowledge and memories in the institutional and post-colonial context. In this article, as an exhibiting artist in the Fugitive Library, Cléophée retraces the content of this collective experience by offering a personal analysis of the interventions that were proposed, and the creative methods developed in response to this issue.

What would you say if I told you that our Black history has been denied?

The texts in the document are both poetic and autobiographical reflections on how to heal from and confront the colonial wounds inflicted from the African continent through the Middle Passage to Abya Yala, or what colonizers refer to as the Americas.
