This black-on-black book brings together over 20 years of Deanna Bowen’s commitment to the excavation and recontextualization of colonial legacies—particularly those which implicate her family history and the Black diaspora in North America—making her artworks vital, both in Canada and abroad. Working primarily with photography—both rediscovered and new, but also video, documentary film, sound, performance, publishing, found objects and installation art—Bowen introduces us to a re-reading of white historic and archival facts.
