Seeing / being seen
South Africa and the Netherlands see each other. As an extension
to the Family
Stories exhibition in the Tropenmuseum in Amsterdam, the web
site Seeing /Being Seen follows the daily lives of nine families
from South Africa (mail the families!).
The site contains contributions from South African journalists about
the Netherlands and from Dutch journalists about South Africa. There
is a lot of reading material about the history of 350 years of relations
between the Netherlands and South Africa. This exceptional journalistic
project is an initiative of the Institute for the Advancement of
Journalism, The Cultural Helpdesk (South Africa), and the Dutch
Institute for Southern Africa.
