  • Location: Center for Documentary Studies , 1317 W. Pettigrew Street
  • Cost: Free
  • Contact: None
  • Description: [NOTE: An exhibit reception and curator's talk on May 11, 6 to 9 p.m., is cosponsored by the Concilium on Southern Africa.] bin-ne-goed Afrikaans n. 1. Innards or intestines. 2. Euphemism for courage. 3. Way of being on the inside that is both vital and entangled. South Africa during Apartheid is revisited with the work of 16 photographers who lived and worked during this period of legalized racial segregation. "BINNEGOED: Coloured & South African Photography" reflects on the history of race and Apartheid resistance to consider what it meant to be neither Black nor White but classified as Coloured, even a century before Apartheid began. Through the use of archival photography, BINNEGOED makes visible these small Coloured histories that, while marginal to the story of South Africa today, are rooted deep within the country and its body politic. Drawn from collections held in Duke's Archive of Documentary Arts at the Rubenstein Rare Book and Manuscript Library, BINNEGOED includes the work of some important, yet underexposed artists who came of age during Apartheid defiance, photographers like Cedric Nunn, Paul Alberts, Gideon Mendel, Zubeida Vallie, George Hallett, Paul Weinberg, and Bee Berman. BINNEGOED is curated by Candice Jansen, 2014-15 CDS exhibitions intern. Jansen also is a new Ph.D. Fellow and an Archibald Mafeje Scholar at the Wits Institute for Social and Economic Research (WiSER) in Johannesburg, South Africa.

  • Location: Center for Documentary Studies , 1317 W. Pettigrew Street
  • Cost: Free
  • Contact: None
  • Description: [NOTE: An exhibit reception and curator's talk on May 11, 6 to 9 p.m., is cosponsored by the Concilium on Southern Africa.] bin-ne-goed Afrikaans n. 1. Innards or intestines. 2. Euphemism for courage. 3. Way of being on the inside that is both vital and entangled. South Africa during Apartheid is revisited with the work of 16 photographers who lived and worked during this period of legalized racial segregation. "BINNEGOED: Coloured & South African Photography" reflects on the history of race and Apartheid resistance to consider what it meant to be neither Black nor White but classified as Coloured, even a century before Apartheid began. Through the use of archival photography, BINNEGOED makes visible these small Coloured histories that, while marginal to the story of South Africa today, are rooted deep within the country and its body politic. Drawn from collections held in Duke's Archive of Documentary Arts at the Rubenstein Rare Book and Manuscript Library, BINNEGOED includes the work of some important, yet underexposed artists who came of age during Apartheid defiance, photographers like Cedric Nunn, Paul Alberts, Gideon Mendel, Zubeida Vallie, George Hallett, Paul Weinberg, and Bee Berman. BINNEGOED is curated by Candice Jansen, 2014-15 CDS exhibitions intern. Jansen also is a new Ph.D. Fellow and an Archibald Mafeje Scholar at the Wits Institute for Social and Economic Research (WiSER) in Johannesburg, South Africa.

  • Location: Center for Documentary Studies , 1317 W. Pettigrew Street
  • Cost: Free
  • Contact: None
  • Description: [NOTE: An exhibit reception and curator's talk on May 11, 6 to 9 p.m., is cosponsored by the Concilium on Southern Africa.] bin-ne-goed Afrikaans n. 1. Innards or intestines. 2. Euphemism for courage. 3. Way of being on the inside that is both vital and entangled. South Africa during Apartheid is revisited with the work of 16 photographers who lived and worked during this period of legalized racial segregation. "BINNEGOED: Coloured & South African Photography" reflects on the history of race and Apartheid resistance to consider what it meant to be neither Black nor White but classified as Coloured, even a century before Apartheid began. Through the use of archival photography, BINNEGOED makes visible these small Coloured histories that, while marginal to the story of South Africa today, are rooted deep within the country and its body politic. Drawn from collections held in Duke's Archive of Documentary Arts at the Rubenstein Rare Book and Manuscript Library, BINNEGOED includes the work of some important, yet underexposed artists who came of age during Apartheid defiance, photographers like Cedric Nunn, Paul Alberts, Gideon Mendel, Zubeida Vallie, George Hallett, Paul Weinberg, and Bee Berman. BINNEGOED is curated by Candice Jansen, 2014-15 CDS exhibitions intern. Jansen also is a new Ph.D. Fellow and an Archibald Mafeje Scholar at the Wits Institute for Social and Economic Research (WiSER) in Johannesburg, South Africa.
