Photo Exhibition: PONTE CITY, photos by Mikhael Subotzky and Patrick Waterhouse

  • Apr 3, 2014 · 7:00 PM
  • Le Bal


Le Bal is showing what promises to be a very interesting exhibition centered around Ponte City — the tallest inhabitable structure in Johannesburg, South Africa. During the apartheid era, Ponte City was the pre-eminent residential address in the city. Post-apartheid, it became the symbol of a decayed Johannesburg as rich whites left the center city for the suburbs.

Today, the tower has been bought by new owners and has become a symbol of the rebirth of Johannesburg as a multi-ethnic metropolis. Subotzky and Waterhouse spent five years documenting the tower and the day-to-day lives of its inhabitants and the traces left behind by previous residents.

By all accords, this should be an excellent show. For more information, please visit Le Bal's website:

Le Bal is open until 22h00 on Thursdays, so we can meet at 19h00 and still have several hours to explore the exhibition.

Admission to Le Bal is 5€.

See you on Thursday!

    I'm sorry for the exhibition, it's impossible for me to come with the group today because I have to stay later on my work...
    Maybe an other time?
