​LUMA Westbau presents solo exhibition by South-African photographer and visual activist Zanele Muholi.


For over a decade, Zanele Muholi (b. Umlazi, Durban,1972) has documented black lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex people’s lives in various townships in South Africa.

In her first institutional solo exhibition in Switzerland, Muholi presents a comprehensive selection of works from three different ongoing series: Faces and PhasesBrave Beauties and Somnyama Ngonyama (‘Hail the Dark Lioness’), which was previously shown at LUMA Arles in France in 2016. The exhibition also includes screenings of the documentaries We Live in Fear (2013) and Ayanda and Nhlanhla’s Wedding (2013) and a documentary space for Inkanyiso, (Zulu for ‘the one who brings light'), the multi-media internet platform that Zanele Muholi founded in 2009 to create a visual history of LGBTQI communities.
