Light Industry: Martha Rosler: The South Africa Tapes
220 36th Street (between 2nd and 3rd Avenue), 5th Floor
Hosted by: Light Industry
Martha Rosler presents a “rough cut” edition of a documentary about South Africa in the days after Apartheid, focusing particularly on the issue of housing.
In 1990 following the fall of Apartheid, Rosler was invited to travel to South Africa and teach videography to Cape Town university students and work with local organizations to develop their media programs. During this time, Rosler interviewed citizens across the economic spectrum in Cape Town to gather a broad view of what this new post-Apartheid society was evolving into.
After the screening, Rosler will discuss her time in South Africa with Bosko Blagojevic.
