'...for those who live in it, Pop-culture politics and strong voices' is the title of a project that will bring new works of ten South African artists to the Netherlands.

The generation of young artists now emerging in South-Africa is the first to grow up and start its own art practice after apartheid. These artists are very aware of this, and are emphatically searching for their own way to express the political and social implications of this in their work. This could, on the one hand, be by making bold political statements, or on the other, by ignoring politics altogether.

Due to the Soccer World Cup, which will be held in South Africa around the same time, major brands such as Nike, Coca Cola and Sony have become an integral part of the South-African street scene. '...for those who live in it' aims to provide an alternative, contrasting perspective, by showing us a broad palette of unorthodox, activist, dynamic expressions at the interface of contemporary art and pop culture, particularly in Cape Town and Johannesburg.

Artists on show are Athi-Patra Ruga, Gugulective, Spoek Mathambo, Kudzanai 'Kudzi' Chiurai, Musa Nxumalo, Zanele Muholi, Bitterkomix, Faith47, Love and hate, Chimurenga.
