Deconstructing Apartheid: The Photography of Peter Magubane was a comprehensive overview of over forty years of photgraphs which created a powerful visual record of the brutal conditions of apartheid and the struggles to transform South Africa from a racist dictatorship to a multiracial democracy.

Bold, saturated colors, oversize graphics, and an exact replica of the jail cell where Magubane spent 568 days in solitary confinement were elements used to tell this dramatic story.
