Rise and Fall of Apartheid: Photography and the Bureaucracy of Everyday Life
September 14, 2012–January 6, 2013
Explore over 60 years in photographs, films, books, and assorted archival documents that examine the apartheid system in South Africa and how it changed all aspects of social existence: from public amenities, all the way to religion. This exhibition makes a connection between the understanding of photography, and the power of the documentary form.
