Space invaders, spice Raiders 2021
Space Invaders, Spice raiders is a satirical commentary on the historical damage and the ongoing impacts the British empire has inflicted and continues to inflict on the world during colonialism. Countless cultures got destroyed, violated and penalised, during the BRUTish empire; the people, land, wealth that was lost and we urgently need more awareness on this subject.
Space Invaders, Spice Raiders is a wordplay phrase based on the idea that colonisers came for 'spices' and stayed for the land, the iconic school playground snack Space Raider crisps and Space Invaders arcade game. It's a playful, but powerful statement to remind people of the destruction colonialism had and still has on former British colonies.
