From September 9th, 2022, through January 8th, 2023, the Espace Louis Vuitton München presents photographic works by Zanele Muholi and David Goldblatt.

Pursuing the Fondation Louis Vuitton’s mission of showcasing Collection holdings for a broader international audience, the exhibition displays photographic works by the two South African artists. Goldblatt’s series of colorful landscape photographs capture the South African people’s complex relationship to their land and explore the meaning of structures – Goldblatt’s term for architecture – in the wake of a new, post-Apartheid national consciousness. Goldblatt’s work is dovetailed with photographs from Zanele Muholi’s “Faces and Phases” series consisting of dignified portraits of Black South African lesbians, transgender and gender non-conforming individuals. The show also features works from Muholi’s “Somnyama Ngonyama” series in which the artist appears in self-portraits evoking stereotypes about Africa and femininity to reverse and reject clichés and archetypes related to her own condition.
