Rise and Fall of Apartheid

Photography and the Bureaucracy of Everyday Life
This is a historical exhibition presenting one of the most comprehensive explorations of the legacy and impact of apartheid on the political, social, and cultural life of South Africa. Explored is the role played by photography and art in recording, documenting, and elucidating the dramatic events that shaped the struggle against apartheid. Complex, vivid, and evocative, and covering more than 50 years of this pivotal period in South Africa, these visual records reveal the procedures and processes of the apartheid state from its beginning in 1948 to the first non-racial democratic elections in 1994.
