Living historically through photographs in post-apartheid South Africa: reflections on Kliptown Museum, Soweto

Research output: Chapter in Book/Conference proceeding with ISSN or ISBNChapter

Abstract

This article was commissioned by the editors for a publication arising from the Curating Difficult Knowledge Conference at the Centre for Ethnographic Research and Exhibition in the Aftermath of Violence (CEREV), Concordia University, Montreal in April 2009. The conference brought together an international group of academics, curators and artists involved in exhibitions, museums and artworks relating to sites of conflict, from North and South America, Europe, Africa and Asia. My article is based on original research at the Kliptown Museum in Soweto and makes a contribution to the literature on forms of visual display in post-conflict museums.
