Michealis 1st year student Sipho Mpongo’s upcoming exhibition at Commune 1

Sipho Mpongo
  • 18/08/15
  • Time: 18:00
  • Venue: Commune 1, 64 Wale Street, Cape Town

Three guys with cameras, one motorhome, 24 000 kilometers traveled during 2014 to see how South Africans are living 20 years after the first democratic elections.

Sipho Mpongo, Wikus de Wet and Sean Metelerkamp have created an immense archive of the contemporary – consisting of photographs, video, audio and notes – that provide invaluable glimpses into the lives and landscapes of postaparheid South Africa.

Along with Natasha Norman, I wrote an essay for the Twenty Journey catalogue, and really recommend seeing this exhibition. For those of you who are not in Cape Town in August, do visit the extensive Twenty Journey Website, or Facebook page:
