STEIDL/THE WALTHER COLLECTION

Events of the Social: Portraiture and Collective Agency

African Photography from The Walther Collection

Edited with text by Elvira Dyangani Ose.

Events of the Social: Portraiture and Collective Agency

Themes of gender, race, class and social change across three generations of African photography

This book is a comprehensive investigation of photographic works by artists from the African continent and its diaspora. Taking the politics of the “colonial gaze” as its starting point, Events of the Social looks at the diverse complexity of the 19th-century archive through a selection of vintage portraits, cartes de visite, postcards and album pages. Three generations of African artists from the 1940s to the present chart the changing features of African societies through portraiture, exploring notions of the self, gender, sexuality, race, social status and politics.
The book also examines landscape and the built environment, showing how architecture and spatial planning convey social order and ideology while reflecting experiences of migration, colonialism, war and industrialization. Another group of artists, born after the mid-1970s, explores issues of social identity, lineage, questions of belonging and personal experiences.
Artists include: Sammy Baloji, Jodi Bieber, Mimi Cherono Ng’ok, Alfred Martin Duggan-Cronin, David Goldblatt, Seydou Keďta, Zanele Muholi, Malick Sidibé and Mikhael Subotzky.

Themes of gender, race, class and social change in 'Events of the Social'

Themes of gender, race, class and social change in 'Events of the Social'

Zanele Muholi's indelible 2006 portrait, Martin Machapa, is reproduced from new release Events of the Social: Portraiture and Collective Agency, featuring 117 color and 115 black-and-white photographs from the world-renowned Walther Collection. Gathering work by three generations of artists—including Sammy Baloji, Jodi Bieber, Mimi Cherono Ng’ok, Alfred Martin Duggan-Cronin, David Goldblatt, Seydou Keďta, Malick Sidibé, Mikhael Subotzky and Muholi, among others—this volume presents a group of artists who can be seen as "agents of a postmodern paradigm shift" towards "biopolitical reflections, neocolonial critiques, gender-right advocations, ritual reactivations, multi-species theories, and political calls to action through the will of the collective," according to editor and curator Elvira Dyangani Ose. continue to blog
