A LABOUR OF LOVE curated by Gabi Ngcobo and Yvette Mutumba presents more than 150 works from the Weltkulturen Museum’s collection, produced in the 1980s by black South African artists, together with twenty new artistic productions by Sam Nhlengethwa, Gabi Ngcobo and art students from Johannesburg, specifically created for this exhibition.

The exhibition focuses on a key part of the Weltkulturen Museum’s contemporary art collection: 600 works from South Africa which the museum acquired in 1986. These works were all produced by black artists, including internationally renowned figures such as Peter Clarke, Lionel Davis, David Koloane and Sam Nhlengethwa.
