This February, CIRCA and Pompeii Commitment. Archaeological Matters presents A Monument A Ruin, a powerful new film by Cassandra Press. The work presents a short video-lecture in which ancient street inscriptions collide with contemporary protest graffiti to question the role of monuments. To coincide with this major new commission we are launching a limited edition print which features a collage from the reader produced as part of the commission.

ABOUT CASSANDRA PRESS
Founded in 2016, Cassandra Press is an extension of the multidisciplinary practice of Kandis Williams. What began as a publishing platform to highlight texts on issues of race, feminism, power, and aesthetics, Cassandra Press has since grown to become a multifaceted educational resource, hosting virtual workshops and organizing artist residencies alongside its publishing program. Over the past five years, Cassandra Press has published thirty-one readers which function as spiral-bound anthologies presenting theory, history, sociology, and criticism by a panoply of intellectuals, activists, and editorial sources. In 2020 the platform began the Cassandra Classrooms project, a series of immersive courses led by artists, intellectuals, and educators who share their vital knowledge and invite participants into generative investigations. Classroom sessions thus far have featured Manuel Arturo Abreu, Rhea Dillon and Yaniya Lee, among many others.
