UNSETTLED (article first published : 2005-08-30)

The marking of the “Decade of Democracy” in South African has seen many celebratory ventures on the calendar of the South African arts and culture scene of late.

The Durban Art Gallery’s exhibition 10/10 for Democracy (April 2004-Dcember 2004) was no exception.

The focus on the changes within the new South Africa is the main inspiration for Unsettled: 8 South African Photographers. This exhibition, curated by Mads Damsbo, in conjunction with the Museum of Photography in the royal library, Copenhagen, celebrates the tenth anniversary of the ending of Apartheid in South Africa.

The invited South African photographers include Jodi Bieber, Adam Broomberg, Oliver Chanarin, David Goldblatt, Santu Mofokeng, Jo Ratcliffe, Guy Tillim and Nontsikelelo “Lolo” Veleko. The works explore the transformations within the new South Africa, from the optimism and solidarity to the tensions, conflicts and challenges that are ever-present in contemporary South Africa. The exhibition will be on show at the Durban Art Gallery during September 2005.
