EXHIBITION: THE BLACK CHRONICLES II
at Rivington Place, London, UK

The Black Chronicles II is a newly curated exhibition exploring black presences (African and Asian) in 19th and early 20th century Britain, through the prism of studio photography.

Drawing on the metaphor of the chronicle the exhibition presents over 200 photographs, the majority of which have never been exhibited or published before. As a curated body of work, these photographs present new knowledge and offer different ways of seeing the black subject in Victorian Britain, and contribute to an ongoing process of redressing persistent ‘absence’ within the historical record.

A highlight of the show is a dedicated display of thirty portraits of members of The African Choir, who toured Britain between 1891-93, seen here for the first time. Perhaps the most comprehensive series of images rendering the black subject in Victorian Britain, these extraordinary portraits on glass plate negatives by the London Stereoscopic Company have been deeply buried in the Hulton Archive, unopened for over 120 years.

These are presented alongside those of other visiting performers, dignitaries, servicemen, missionaries, students and many as yet unidentified black Britons. Their presence bears direct witness to Britain’s colonial and imperial history and the expansion of Empire. (read more)

Alarming!A woman wants sex beyond a duty fuck!Looks outmoded, but women are still expected to be vessels to contain the lust of men. My lust goes all the way down to the marrow. Living in the culture and society I’m entrenched in makes that a difficult thing.

A woman wants sex beyond a duty fuck!

Looks outmoded, but women are still expected to be vessels to contain the lust of men.

My lust goes all the way down to the marrow.
Living in the culture and society I’m entrenched in makes that a difficult thing.

Memories of Pinochet’s Chile

On September 11, 1973, Gen. Augusto Pinochet seized power in a U.S.-backed coup that deposed the democratically elected president, Salvador Allende, who committed suicide rather than surrender and led to 17 years of military rule.

Some 40,000 people suffered human rights abuses in Chile from 1973 to 1990. More than 3,000 were killed or forcibly disappeared, their bodies buried in unmarked graves or dumped at sea.
