Colour of Protest is an art exploration into strategies of resistance, representation and belonging in post-Apartheid South Africa and post-Soviet Belarus.  As a point of departure for critical reflection, Nadzeya Husakouskaya, researcher and photographer from Belarus, takes their experience of witnessing Women's March against police brutality in Marikana, the mining area in North West, South Africa, in September 2012.


The exhibition will open on 19th of August at 5.pm. Wine and light refreshments will be served. Welcome!
