Let Us Try for Once 
William Kentridge's drawings and films excavate the legacy and paradoxes of colonialism. KABOOM! is a three-channel work projected onto a model scaled to the stage of The Head & the Load. The Head & the Load, based on a Ghanian proverb, "tells the story of the nearly 2 million African porters and carriers used by the British, French and Germans during the First World War in Africa through music, dance, film projections, mechanised sculptures and shadow-play."
