Catalogus bij de tentoonstelling Huis Marseille, Amsterdam, 2014
Printed to accompany an exhibition of thirteen participating photographers at Huis Marseille in Amsterdam, this catalogue explores the multi-faceted phenomenon of South African visual culture, both during apartheid and in its aftermath. Along with critical readings by Sean OToole and Els Barents, it presents work by David Goldblatt, Santu Mofokeng, Jo Ractliffe, Daniel Naudé, Mikhael Subotzky, Sabelo Mlangeni and others. The images reveal how powerfully the recent past can colour our perception of the present, and how being a photographer in South Africa requires a sober, articulate and skilled approach to the nations burden of memory, trauma and guilt.
