The exhibition Rise and Fall of Apartheid: Photography and the Bureaucracy of Everyday Life examines the legacy of the apartheid system that was in place in South Africa from 1948 to 1994. The system enforced racial segregation through legislation by the National Party government, and had a deep impact on many aspects of daily life, such as housing, transportation, education, religion and business.

Six years of research have resulted in a comprehensive historical overview of the struggle for civil rights, from how apartheid defined South Africa’s identity, to the rise of Nelson Mandela. It brings together the work of nearly 70 photographers, artists and filmmakers.

In 2012 the exhibition was hosted by the International Center of Photography in New York. Click here to read the review by The New York Times.
