South Africa’s New Mo(u)rning

An exhibition of South African visual activist Zanele Muholi’s photographs and videos is now on view at WCMA. Zanele Muholi bears witness to the experiences of black lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgendered, and intersexed (LGBTI) individuals from South Africa and other African countries. In a social context in which homosexuality is often perceived as un-African and an affront to national identity, her photographs provide affirming depictions of same-sex intimacy and desires.

Williams alum Bridget Ngcobo ’12 works with Zanele Muholi’s media collective Inkanyiso. In her most recent post on from South Africa she writes about Zanele Muholi’s Mo(u)rning exhibition at the Wits Art Museum in Johannesburg. 2014 Jan. 29: South Africa’s New Mo(u)rning
