Long Description
More than 10 years after the end of Apartheid, South Africa is still ravaged by political, medical and, as ever, racial struggle. Violence and crime rates remain extremely high, and critics say that the democratic process hasn't helped the disadvantaged or redistributed wealth, it has only installed a new elite. The contemporary photographers Omar Badsha, David Goldblatt, Bob Gosani, Pieter Hugo, Ranjith Kally, Thando Mama, Santu Mofokeng, Jo Ractliffe, Jurgen Schadeberg, Bernie Searle and Andrew Tshabangu have undertaken to document the new South Africa--the changing and the tenaciously unchanging--in pictures. From David Goldblatt's famous Commuterseries on black workers forced to travel from the townships to Johannesburg to Omar Badsha's Imperial Ghetto,a study of the everyday life of inhabitants of Indian descent in the harbor city of Durban, they seek, and find, truths.
Main Description
More than ten years after the end of apartheid, South Africa, the supposed "rainbow nation", is a country still torn by inner conflicts. Critics maintain that the democratic process has led only to a re-coloring of the elites, not to a just division of wealth. Against this background, the exhibition Black, Brown, White searches for clues in pictures. Outstanding South African photo artists of various generations will show diverse facets of a country between apartheid and new departures. Book jacket.
Unpaid Annotation
More than 10 years after the end of Apartheid, South Africa is still ravaged by political, medical and, as ever, racial struggle. Violence and crime rates remain extremely high, and critics say that the democratic process hasnt helped the disadvantaged or redistributed wealth, it has only installed a new elite. The contemporary photographers Omar Badsha, David Goldblatt, Bob Gosani, Pieter Hugo, Ranjith Kally, Thando Mama, Santu Mofokeng, Jo Ractliffe, Jürgen Schadeberg, Bernie Searle and Andrew Tshabangu have undertaken to document the new South Africa--the changing and the tenaciously unchanging--in pictures. From David Goldblatts famous Commuter series on black workers forced to travel from the townships to Johannesburg to Omar Badshas Imperial Ghetto, a study of the everyday life of inhabitants of Indian descent in the harbor city of Durban, they seek, and find, home truths.
