Dead Revolutionaries Club


The Dead Revolutionaries Club is a Johannesburg-based collective comprised of Khwezi Gule, Sharlene Khan, Bandile Gumbi and Fouad Asfour. The Collective was formed in critical reaction to "the idea that there is something inherently progressive about contemporary art… as the instruments of oppression become more sophisticated the rhetoric of freedom becomes more pervasive". Concerned by the lack of criticality in post-apartheid South Africa – both within the art world and the wider society - the Collective is both an online critical platform, and an initiator of exhibitions, workshops and events that address these concerns.
