Zanele Muholi

8 July-15 Oct. The Stedelijk presents the first exhibition in the Netherlands dedicated to South African photographer and visual activist Zanele Muholi whose photographs document her country's black lesbian and transgender community.

Muholi's arresting images highlight the plight of a community which remains at risk of discrimination and abuse, including so-called "curative" rape, despite LGBT rights being protected constitutionally since 1996.

Muholi makes use of dramatic lighting in her work and often depicts herself, as a black lesbian woman, in self-portraits that exhibition organisers describe as "profoundly confrontational yet witty".

The constitution of post-apartheid South Africa was the first in the world to outlaw discrimination based on sexual orientation.

Tues, Wed 11.00-17.00, Thurs 11.00-22.00, Fri-Sun 10.00-18.00
