Neliswe Xaba performs at the Centre For The Less Good Idea

Xaba presents Bang-Bang-Wo, a performative lecture that grapples with the subject of help and aid, alongside video artist and collaborator Candida Merwe, at The Center For The Less Good Idea in Johannesburg (22 – 23 September). The piece considers the concept of ‘help’ in the contemporary global society: help as a sacrifice, demand and rhetoric, and questions how help instils power dynamics between the helper and the helped.
