Twenty artists show Africa from various perspectives, looking at the role of women on the continent, addressing issues such as the environment, memory, colonial history or identity.
One of the participants in the film, Candice Mama, a young woman whose father was killed by Eugene de Kock, and who forgave de Kock and campaigned for his parole release, will make a guest appearance.
The Milan-based bookstore Libreria Bocca and publisher Skira Point host an event to promote the book , which presents for the first time all major works of the artist, created over more than 30 years (5 June).
The show, part of Fotografia Europea, is a presentation of 100 photographs taken in South Africa over the last 100 years, carefully selected from archival, museum and photographers’ collections.
In positioning the photographs as placeholders, the exhibition recognises that photographs are moments and momentary, not only in time and space, but also in making and unmaking histories.
Fragments of homes and possessions picked up from the grassed-over demolition sites of District Six, Cape Town, are encapsulated in small transparent blocks.
