Description

In her work Whiteface, Candice Breitz, born and raised in South Africa during the era of apartheid, draws from an archive that illustrates how white people grapple with the discourses around 'white privilege,' 'white fragility,' 'white rage,' and 'white guilt'. Like a ventriloquist’s dummy, Breitz appropriates dozens of voices from her collection. Wearing nothing but a white dress shirt and zombie contact lenses, she locates the fictions that legitimise and perpetuate white supremacy squarely within the genre of horror.

Commissioned by Museum Folkwang with support from the Kunsthalle Baden-Baden | In cooperation with Kunsthalle Krems.
