Zanele Muholi is a LGBTQIA+ activist from South Africa and one of the most noted photographers of our time. Muholi has documented the lives of colored LGBTQIA+ people in South Africa and other parts of the world during the 21st century. ZAZIZE means “to make oneself known” or “to get information” in the isiZulu language. The LGBTQIA+ term refers to lesbians, gays, bisexuals, queers, transgender and intersex people.
The ZAZIZE exhibition features pieces from over two decades and also offers a view to Muholi’s self-images from different eras. The themes of the exhibition discuss hate crimes, racism, exoticism and politics regarding sexuality.
The exhibit is held at The Finnish Museum of Photography K1 from Feb 4 to May 29, 2022.
Mon–Fri at 11 am – 8 pm
Sat–Sun at 11 am – 6 pm
