Catalogue Note

“A key text for me is James Baldwin's essays. The essay is from the mid '50s, when he's moved to Switzerland to work on a novel, and he finds himself the only black man living in a tiny Swiss village. He even says, 'They don't believe I'm American - black people come from Africa." The essay is not only about race relations, but about what it means to be a stranger anywhere.'"
