Grandmother and environmental activist Mariette Liefferink is up against the richest mining corporations in South Africa. The golden era of mining has left behind 600 kilotons of waste uranium which is not only polluting one of Africa’s biggest aquifers, but raining over the city as fine dust. With 1,6 million people living on radioactive grounds, she is on a mission to force the gold industry to clean up the remains of over a century of gold mining.
Our Cold Front from the Balkans exhibition focuses on different generations of artists and art groups from the Balkan region. Throughout the exhibition, we keep sharing detailed information about the artworks. Take a look at Mark Požlep’s “Stranger than Paradise” video installation. Also you can check our interview with the artist on our YouTube channel!
I remembered a game as I was waiting in the passenger lounge for the ferry to arrive just a few minutes ago. A game we used to play at home when I was young, in my country that is very far away from here, a relic from the distant past; I don’t even remember how we used to play it. The kind of game that makes me feel a thousand times lonelier than I already am among the crowd waiting to get on the ferry.
