Title

Monumental politics in Namibia

Description

The re-siting of the Rider Monument in central Windhoek from the site of one of the concentration camps from the first genocide of the 20th century to a new location in front of the museum at the Alte Feste has raised many questions. So too, has the construction of the Independence Memorial Museum on the very site formally occupied by the Rider Monument. Andrew Byerley looks into Namibia’s symbolic and heritage space.
