The multi-award-winning Namibian photographer Margaret Courtney-Clarke is presenting works from over 40 years of work at the Francisco Carolinum. In the exhibition, Courtney-Clarke shows what has brought her into the public eye for the first time: South, West and North African indigenous women in their domestic environment.
The artist also focuses on the dark history of the people who have historically lived in the Namib and Kalahari Deserts. The long-term relationships and friendships she has built over the years not only grant her access to intimate portraits of embattled but resilient peoples, but also address in detail the great social justice issues of our time – ongoing droughts, climate change, environmental degradation and the impact of extractive industries in a resource-rich but water-scarce country.
