In it’s 3rd Season The Centre for the Less Good Idea is proud to be working with Malose Kadromatt Malahlela of Keleketla! Library through Curators Bhavisha Panchia (Nothing To Commit Records) and Bettina Malcomess / Anne Historical (the Joining Room)
On Saturday 14 April a Season 3 satellite performance called PUBLIC HEARING will take place.
The Drill Hall | 16 Twist Street
PUBLIC HEARING is a performance of memory against erasure and accountability, in which people (rather than property itself) are implicated in issues having to do with land, rent and the asymmetry in how culture is produced, consumed and memorialised in a country such as South Africa.
PUBLIC HEARING forms part of Malose Malahlela’s contribution to The Centre for the Less Good Idea Season 3, itself part of Keleketla!’s 10 year reflection, embedded within that process is the need to create transparency and highlight the narrative around the Drill Hall issue in relation to Keleketla!’s exile from the site.
Members of Committee Present: Malose Malahlela (co-founder Keleketla! Library), Rangoato Hlasane (co-founder Keleketla! Library) and Joseph Gaylard (Pro Helvetia Johannesburg, formerly Joubert Park Project co-organiser). Contributions by Eric Itzkin (Deputy Director Immovable Heritage), Nicolette Pingo (Johannesburg Development Agency) and Khwezi Gule ( curator-in-chief JAG)
