Public Acts
Johannesburg
Prince Clause Foundation with support of Rosa Luxemburg Foundation
October 2011
In collaboration with Katharina Rohde

PublicActs emerges out of a curiosity as to what constitutes public space in Johannesburg – a city notorious for the lack thereof. The project sought to identify what alternative forms and practices constituted Johannesburg public realm. Through the understanding thereof, we hope that we would be better placed to act within as practitioners. Collaborating with 6 conceptual artists, a series of Acts teased alternative understandings of Johannesburg’s public realm and its relevance.
