"Is there such a thing as the real city of Cape Town? Maybe, and maybe not. But perhaps it could be interesting to consider reality not as a subject in a frame, but reality as a transformative search." Ilze Wolff, 2016
We hosted, conceptualised and published the catalogue to a group photographic exhibition called Real City. We collaborated with photographer Barry Christianson who founded therealcityofcapetown instagram feed.
The #therealcityofcapetown group consists of a growing group of embedded and engaged photographers and for the exhibition we displayed the work of Lidudumalingani Mqombothi, Iqraa Daniel, Barry Christianson, Lindsey Appolis, Leanne Brady, Ashraf Hendricks, Musaed Abrahams and Zayaan Jappie. An image of Ocean View taken by the late Peter Clarke formed part of the exhibition as a starting point for the conversation around the plurality of imaginaries, public practices and lived experience in and of Cape Town.
