Museum Africa
Johannesburg, South Africa
Museum Africa currently has a number of exhibitions that tell the diverse and complex story of South Africa. “Cartoons in Context” draws from the museum’s vast collection of original political cartoons. Dating back to the late 1700s and going right up to the 2000s, the selection shows how cartoons can be used both as a means of oppression and as a means of protest and change. “Johannesburg Tracks: Mapping sexuality in the city” follows eight gay, lesbian and transgender people through Johannesburg. It shows the way that “the gay experience” is part of the very fabric of Johannesburg. “Gandhi’s Johannesburg: The birthplace of Satyagraha” shows the buildings and places associated with Mahatma Gandhi and his struggle against discrimination and encourages visitors to go to the sites described in the museum.
