The Resonance is a ritual of healing and the reenactment of the torture inflicted upon the Nama and Herero women of Namibia during the German colonial era. They were forced to clean the bones of their murdered with broken glass. Those bones were used to conduct comparative anatomical research on ‘human races' in Germany by Dr. Eugen Fischer. Between 1905-1907, 3,000 bones were sent to Germany from the Shark Island concentration camp otherwise known as Death Camp. The decimation of the Nama and Herero people is known as the first genocide of the 20th century.

Produced by Iwalewahaus at the University of Bayreuth, Germany for the exhibition Future Africa - Visions in Time curated by Katharina Fink, Storm Janse Van Rensburg, and Nadine Siegert.
