Interview: Cara Snyman, Co-editor of Shoe Shop, Explores Urban Spaces and Boundaries
Cara Snyman, who co-edited Shoe Shop along with Marie-Hélène Gutberlet, spoke to The Citizen‘s Leigh-Anne Hunter about the notions of belonging, boundaries and migration that formed the idea for the book.
Snyman and Gutberlet noticed that when people spoke about movement and space they tended to use general terms and overarching narratives. The book offers an alternative space for people to tell their personal stories and explore the subtleties of these issues.
“Step, tread, pace, stride, stroll, saunter, strut, stalk, prance…” begins the book, Shoe Shop, a Goethe- Institut initiative.
Walking is something we do every day, yet we seldom slow down to appreciate what this means for us as individuals and in a broader social context.
“It would be close to impossible to find a single individual in South Africa whose history and self-de-finition is not related to some form of migration,” write Marie-Hélène Gutberlet and Cara Snyman in Shoe Shop.
