For the book-as-documentary, visual artist Ixmucané Aguilar worked in close collaboration with Nama and OvaHerero people, who vividly recall memories and rituals of mourning caused by the loss of life and land during Imperial Germany’s occupation. It is an artistic photography documentary which presents a multilayered portrait on the genocide and it’s aftereffects until today. Contributions by human rights attorney Wolfgang Kaleck and the curator of the work Tristan Pranyko, along with poetry by Namibian artists Nesindano Namise (Khoes), Fritz Isak Dirkse and Prince Kamaazengi. Narratives, testimonies, chants and mourning rituals shared by OvaHerero and Nama people in present-day Namibia.
