PETER & MOLLY

The video portrait responds to the recent backlash faced by activist, model and trans woman of colour, Munroe Bergdorf, when publicly articulating the privilege of white people. In response a white, gender nonconforming artist expresses the anxieties of coming to terms
with a colonial bloodline. The cognitive disconnect exhibited by white people when people of colour articulate their experiences is fuelled by white defensiveness, and is an expression of the discomfort of having emerged from a history of evil. We have a responsibility to acknowledge our white privilege and the racist systems from which we automatically benefit, towards dismantling them.
