The Strategic Radicals
The Strategic Radicals’ Manifesto was formulated in Windhoek in January of 2020. Stemming from the collaborative exhibition and discussion group FAVT – Future Africa Visions in Time – engaged with conversations around knowledge production in the context of institutions and African futures. The project initially launched in Germany in 2015 resulting in a traveling exhibition spanning Nairobi, Johannesburg, Salvador da Bahia, Windhoek, Harare and Ouagadougou thus far. Further editions will travel to Kigali, Kampala and Santiago/Cuba. The design presents a glimmering yellow cover paper held together by a bright green rubber band. The heraldic animal is designed by Emeka Alams. It embodies the manifesto in a visual form, and also appears in the silk-screen artist edition you find on the next pages.
