The MoVE method:visual:explore project of the African Centre for Migration & Society (at Wits University) is holding an exhibition that showcases two visual and narrative research projects conducted in 2016 and 2017. Both projects involved collaboration with the MoVE Project and the Sisonke Sex Worker Movement. The exhibition will feature The Sex Worker Poster Project conducted with persons who sell sex in Mpumalanga, and the sex worker newsletter project entitled, Izwi Lethu: Our Voices.Opening remarks will be delivered by Judy Seidman on the history of the use of posters in South Africa’s activism. Seidman is a cultural worker and visual artist. Between 1980 and 1985, she worked with the Medu Art Ensemble in Gaborone (Botswana) to make posters for the liberation struggle in South Africa. Since then she has worked as a curator, facilitator and freelance designer for various social movements (including the trade unions) such as the Curriculum Development Project, Khulumani Support Group, the 1in9 Campaign, and the Sex Workers Education and Advocacy Taskforce.
