MoHoA: A Global Collective on Modern Heritage of Africa, Modern Heritage of Anthropocene
Guang yu Ren introduces MoHoA as a global collaborative focusing on modern heritage in all its forms, presenting the paradox of being of modernity and yet threatened by its consequences.
It is originally conceived in the African context because the continent encapsulates the historical inequities that characterise the modern and its associated notions of development and progress, whilst the highest rates of urbanisation demands equitable and sustainable futures on a planetary scale.
MoHoA aims to achieve a re-conceptualisation of ‘modern’ heritage that is relieved of Eurocentric, homogenous, universalising, developmental and colonial associations, reframes as an inherently plural and planetary phenomenon that heralded the Anthropocene.
