Contesting Visibility PDF

Heike Behrend

Since the introduction of photography by commercial studio photographers and the colonial state in Kenya, this global medium has been intensely debated and contested among Muslims on the cosmopolitan East African coast. This book does not only explore the making, circulation, and consumption of popular photographs, but also the other side, their rejection and obliteration, an essential aspect of a mediums history that should not be neglected. It deals with various social spaces of refusal in the local Muslim milieu and in that of traditional spirit mediums in which (gendered) visibility was (and is) contested in various and creative ways. It focuses on the aesthetics of withdrawal: the various ways and techniques that process the photographic act as well as the photographic image to theatricalize the surface of the image in new ways by veiling, masking, and concealing. In a fragmented historical perspective, Heike Behrend seeks to complement, decenter, and counter the history of photography as it has been told by the West and to narrate another history beginning with preceding local media such as textiles and spirit possession.

Visibility looms over publics like a Bastille to be conquered. This conquest by those who consider themselves “visibility-deprived” is that of three rights they almost perceive as human rights: (1) the right to be seen, (2) the right to being seen on their own terms, and (3) the right of conferring visibility on others.1 Contesting - Wikipedia
