    DescriptionThis online exhibition tells a story about a river in Cape Town, South Africa, about its colonial past and its Anthropocene future. It centers on the water course of the Liesbeek River, because this river’s heritage encapsulates—in the words of the Goringhaicona Khoi KhoiIndigenous Traditional Council High Commissioner Tauriq Jenkins—Cape Town’s ‘Ground Zero’, the place where colonial dispossession began.
