Description:

Neuware - Die Geschichte der Apartheid in Südafrika eine umfassende Auseinandersetzung mit Ursprung, Entwicklung und Niedergang Fotografen wie Eli Weinberg, Alf Khumalo, David Goldblatt, Peter Magubane, Ian Berry u. a. spielten eine äußerst wichtige Rolle in der Dokumentation der Apartheid. Ihre Bilder belegen, wie das System die alltäglichsten Aspekte des südafrikanischen Lebens durchdrang, vom Wohnen über öffentliche Einrichtungen und Verkehr bis hin zu Bildung, Tourismus, Religion und Handel. Chronologisch aufgebaut, verbindet der vorliegende Band Fotografien und kenntnisreiche Texte miteinander, um die entscheidenden Aspekte der Apartheid zu ergründen, wie die Institutionalisierung mit Hilfe des Rechtssystems, den wachsenden Widerstand in den 1950er Jahren, die Radikalisierung der Anti-Apartheid-Bewegung sowie Mandelas Rückkehr. Detailliert und umfassend recherchiert, präsentiert Rise and Fall of Apartheid beeindruckendes Fotomaterial aus mehr als 60 Jahren und wird so zu einem wichtigen Bestandteil der historischen Dokumentation Südafrikas.

Synopsis: Featuring some of the most iconic images of our time, this unique combination of photojournalism and commentary offers a probing and comprehensive exploration of the birth, evolution, and demise of apartheid in South Africa. Photographers played an important role in the documentation of apartheid, capturing the system's penetration of even the most mundane aspects of life in South Africa. Included in this vivid and compelling volume are works by photographers such as Eli Weinberg, Alf Khumalo, David Goldblatt, Peter Magubane, Ian Berry, and many others. Organized chronologically, it interweaves images and essays exploring the institutionalization of apartheid through the country's legal apparatus; the growing resistance in the 1950s; and the radicalization of the anti-apartheid movement within South Africa and, later, throughout the world. Finally, the book investigates the fall of apartheid, including Mandela's return from exile. Far-reaching and exhaustively researched, this important book features more than 60 years of powerful photographic material that forms part of the historical record of South Africa.
