Monument to anti-apartheid activists, Coline Williams and Robert Waterwich, Athlone, Cape Town. In the 1980s Athlone was a centre of the struggles against apartheid, commemorated through the Williams / Waterwich monument. But it was also a space of once fertile intellectual and cultural activity at the height of apartheid. Today, as represented through the Williams / Waterwich monument, it is rendered as a space of atrocity, and not thought and creativity. Photograph: Sam Longford
