Keiskamma Tapestries

‘Dying and Rising, as the Moon Does’, reads the English title of this wondrous exhibition. Essentially, it’s a story-telling project created by an artist’s collective from Hamburg in the Eastern Cape, but it’s so much more than that – as you will learn when you witness the renditions of rural life, nature and conservation, and the way in which the community endured the effects of the HIV/Aids crisis as well as the Covid-19 pandemic. Oral traditions are safe-guarded through the medium of these tapestries, and the healing process is evident, as are the dreams and expectations of the women who created them.

A tour of the tapestries may be combined with a visit to Constitution Hill or can be arranged as a visit on its own.
