Rise and Fall of Apartheid | Photography and the Bureaucracy of Everyday Life

Exhibition: 15.02 – 26.05.13
Haus der Kunst, Munich

“Rise and Fall of Apartheid” offers a comprehensive historical overview of the pictorial response to apartheid, which has never been undertaken before. Through its images, it explores the significance of the civil rights struggle, from how apartheid defined South Africa’s identity from 1948 to 1994, to the rise of Nelson Mandela, and finally its lasting impact. It examines the aesthetic power of the documentary form – from the photo essay to reportage, social documentary to photojournalism and art – in recording, analyzing, articulating, and confronting apartheid’s legacy and effects on everyday life in South Africa.
