Item description for South African Family Stories: Reflections on an Experiment in Exhibition Making (Bulletins of the Royal Tropical Institute) by Ciraj Rassool...
This fascinating Bulletin reviews the special exhibition "Family Stories from South Africa", which opened in 2002 in the Tropenmuseum, Amsterdam, and was shown in the National Cultural History Museum in Pretoria between 2003 and 2007. South African artists, photographers, designers and researchers worked with nine families to create this imaginative presentation.
Tropenmuseum curator Paul Faber looks back at the making of the exhibition, and Ciraj Rassool and Leslie Witz, Cape Town, discuss the resulting exhibition in the Netherlands. Reviews and reactions to the exhibition in Pretoria are included. As with many of the Royal Bulletins, each contribution provides stimulating ideas on a broad range of questions concerning exhibition development, covering presentation, self presentation, identity, multiculturalism and dealing with apartheid experiences in the contemporary museum context.
