Eugenics for dummies

Art portfolio- my work

Eugenics was and is a very controversial subject. One that I am constantly learning more about. With that said, it is also a very apt theme to investigate in this day and age, especially in a country which is obsessed with race. Little did I know while working on this exhibition that the BEE and equity laws in our country will come under the spotlight again – see here for more info: or

Which makes me wonder what is the future for our boys in this country after they finish school?

So besides these new laws, there is also the uncertainty and fears surrounding A.I. For example our eldest son currently dreams of becoming a programmer after he finish school, and his teacher told him recently that he should reconsider his career dream, since A.I will replace programmers in the future. What? Why not teach the children a programming language right now- giving them hope- and not make them feel that all is lost?

In response we as a family watched this video: which gave him hope again.

Anyway, I will leave you with the following quote: ” The man who made a mistake not only refused to unmake it but decided to go on making it. But in this, he made yet another most amusing mistake,  which was the beginning of all Eugenics. ” – G.K Chesterton from his book Eugenics and other evils. 

and another quote by Rick Rubin.

On that note, I wish you a wonderful weekend.

“It happened one day that an atheist and a man were standing together on a doorstep, and the atheist said, “it is raining.” To which the man replied, “What is raining?” : which question was the beginning of a violent quarrel and a lasting friendship.” G.K Chesterton from his book: Eugenics and other evils.
