What travelers say:

A comparison of the exquisitely elegant fountain at the entrance to Buckingham Palace in London, this one at the Tate Modern, shows the exploiters sitting on it, dressed like military uniforms. The water was filled with slaves, not with pleasure, with animals, but with ferocious sharks. The top of the fountain was not a goddess, but a woman who spewed water from her neck and throat with twin breasts. The fountain is full of different characters, and is reinterpreted by artists to connect with this black Atlantic history. Telling you about this history of slavery in the black Atlantic Ocean, I hope to remind you of the history of slavery in America, Europe and Africa on both sides of the Atlantic.
