Remembering 60 000 Forced Goodbyes District Six 50th Commemoration Print Exchange


This exhibitions showcases 50 prints by 50 artists who collaborated to compile a portfolio of images which commemorate the 50th anniversary of the declaration of District Six in Cape Town a “whites-only” residential area.  The subsequent removal of some 60 000 people and the destruction of their homes  has a left a permanent scar in the centre of the city-scape of Cape Town.  To date no final resolution has been achieved in terms of compensation and restitution of the victims of this Apartheid legislation. 

 

The portfolio was compiled in 2016 and was first shown at the District 6 Museum’s Home Coming Centre.  The realisation, production and exhibition of the portfolio was made possible with the support from Sanlam, Business Art South Africa, Hard Ground Printmakers, Meltt, George Wentzel Book Binder, Wizardz Print and Design and the Cape Peninsula University of Technology.

 

Exhibition dates: 23 January – 28 February 2020
