Apartheid Museum

Protest, Police, Mob, Massacre

Agency: Open

Description

In 2015, there is an all-too-common tendency to believe that the history of Apartheid is no longer relevant, and that it doesn’t affect contemporary South Africa. We were tasked with creating a campaign that would re-affirm the relevance of the history of Apartheid in contemporary South Africa. In so doing, we would be able to attract more people, especially the younger generation, to the Apartheid Museum. We compared the social context of Apartheid-era South Africa with the state of South Africa today. Very quickly it became clear that the imperative to understand the history of Apartheid has never been more urgent. As a country, we are still battling against destructive patterns established during Apartheid, which continue to manifest themselves in modern South African life: ‘riot’, ‘strike’, ‘murder’, 'mob' and ‘massacre’ are unfortunately still a part of the country’s lexicon.

This professional campaign titled 'Protest, Police, Mob, Massacre' was published in South Africa in September, 2015. It was created for the brand: Apartheid Museum, by ad agency: Open. This Print medium campaign is related to the Recreation, Leisure industry and contains 4 media assets. It was submitted about 7 years ago.
