Trans-formations - Between ownership and belonging, transitional space in the post-apartheid metropolis

Republic Of South Africa

The South African exhibition at the 2006 Venice Biennale reflects on how South African cities have transformed since the end of apartheid, focusing on the question of integration, including the aesthetics and material nature of patterns of social change. The exhibition includes specific sites where a new public culture and urban identity are emerging out of an apartheid past, exploring tensions through themes of identity and the means of accessing and overcoming the dislocated nature of the apartheid city. The exhibition aims to promote discussions and contribute to the process of bringing together the previously separate communities of South Africa.
