State-ments is a series of exhibitions in and about South African cities, which explores citizens' perceptions of their diverse and historically complex state architecture.
The Union Buildings, Parliaments, Police Stations, Courts… These buildings are familiar sights. They sit in our cities and shape our environment. Many of us only know the buildings by sight or reputation, but we know that important decisions about our lives are taken inside them.
What do South Africans think about these buildings?
This exhibition showcases five of South Africa’s most important buildings. The buildings were chosen by South African citizens living in and around Pretoria, Johannesburg, Cape Town and Kimberley in January 2019. These include the Constitutional Court, the Union Buildings, Northern Cape Legislature, Parliament and Johannesburg Central Police Station
