Single sheet A4 - Photocopied article - No date/FAN (Feminist Art News) Volume 3 - No.4

Title: The making of Necropolis - The text as a site of cultural struggle
Author: Maud Sulter

From the article: “Lubaina Himid wrote in the afterword to the second edition of The Thin Black Line Catalogue that, There has to be a strategy for the nineties. Black women artists must push themselves and more especially their work much further: beyond the boundaries set in the last one hundred years. From the cusp of modernism to the present day. In every mark made…we have to take into account every nuance within the structures of power and economics and challenge the order while changing the shape“”That is my aim with Necropolis - an echo from the city of the dead.”

From the end of the text: “Maud Sulter read this extract from Necropolis at the International Feminist Bookfair in Barcelona. NECROPOLIS will be published by Urban Fox Press in September 1990.”

Front cover contains a full page photographic reproduction: Girl in a screen door, 1979, Jeanne Moutoussamy-Ashe

Issue edited by Lubaina Himid and Maud Sulter - From the editorial statement on the first page: “As guest editors we wanted to put together an issue which would go out into the world as a passionate letter. Fragments reformed as notes from the underground. Blackwomen’s creativity of the African diaspora needs such links; each a talisman to record, rememory, regroup. Communication over distance; physical, mental, emotional. Historically there has been little space given to us to engage with each other about issues of artistic creativity. Even when we take the space, class, sexuality, privilege are sometimes played off against the more apparently pressing issue of race.
As Blackwomen who are artists and curators we face like you pressures of economic survival, space to live and work, and the continuing onslaught which marginalises and trivialises our experiences. As Zami’s we try to help create a world where all women will have the right to choose and fulfil their creative potential in a beautiful and constructive, life affirming way. We must record our own herstories, span continents, go beyond fixed beliefs imposed by the dominant hegemony.
Our contributors represent a network of brave Blackwomen who want to communicate within a context of equality. Their call and response is here for us to share. Diasporian blues may appear on the horizon but our course is self determined. As Family. No Maps.”
