The Land Act that was passed a century ago in 1913 was a major event in South African history, impacting on the lives of millions of South Africans and underpinning the development of the apartheid system. The photographic exhibition Umhlaba, curated by UCT’s Paul Weinberg and others, is on show at the Wits Art Museum in August.
