Conclusion: Iconoclasm Undone

Show Summary Details


This chapter presents some concluding thoughts from the author, and examples of the dialectic between flow and closure referred to in Chapter 8. It argues that iconoclasm continues as Guinea becomes increasingly fragile as a state, and that today’s youngsters are attacking the sites of power which they perceive as being at the root of their exclusion. Much as in the 1950s, in today’s Guinea the future lies in the hands of its younger citizens. Much as then, they are unsatisfied with the powers that be, and not without reason.

Keywords: flow; closure; Guinea; iconoclasm
