Abstract

My body is an archive of a history of South Africa. I am the embodiment of the history of colonialism and apartheid. I have the body of the coloniser. Although I actively commit to anti-racism and to accept accountability and take responsibility for colonialism and apartheid, my white South African body remains a coloniser due to white privilege. My white body is ‘both the questioner and the question’ (Atkins, 2004:345).
