Description:

“I did not hear anything, my eyes were blocked, and what was being played I ...., but I could not breathe with my mouth, ears were blocked, ears were sore, sore, sore, sore, that is how it was and I sweated, wet, wet, wet from my sweat (laughing), and when it was lifted from my face, I was able to get my breath back.”

Petrus Goliath spoke these words into a phonograph just after he had gone through the painful and offensive experience of casting, measuring, and photographing in the Witpütz policestation in southern Namibia. The German artist Hans Lichtenecker created this bizarre archive of racial types in 1931. Soon afterwards, the casts of faces and body parts, voice recordings on wax cylinders, anthropometrical photographs and other physical representations were exhibited in at the colonial exhibition in Köln, Germany (1934) and, again in the 1980s in the Namibian capital of Windhoek.

This book, which accompanies the exhibition What we See, engages with the anthropometrical archive and its canned voices theoretically, visually and artistically. Its essays reconsider anthropometric collections and their representational claims through bones, skeletons, casts, masks, and photography.
