Zanele Muholi - limited edition signed exhibition book - 2020
Commemorating Tate Modern’s exhibition, this stunning catalogue presents the full breadth of Muholi’s photographic and activist practice. The book includes never-before-published and recent works, alongside images from the key series Muholi has produced over the past twenty years. The exhibition book also features six newly commissioned essays exploring their work, as well as a full glossary and chronology.
Born in South Africa, Zanele Muholi came to prominence in the early 2000s with photographs that sought to envision black lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, queer and intersex lives beyond deviance or victimhood. Muholi’s work challenges hetero-patriarchal ideologies and representations, presenting the participants in their photographs as confident and beautiful individuals bravely existing in the face of prejudice, intolerance and, frequently, violence. While Muholi’s intimate photographs of others launched their international career, their intense self-portraits solidified it.
