What does being African look like?

Posted by rod - 11.12.2014


Renowned South African graphic designer Garth Walker asked himself “What does being African look like?” in 1994 when he started his magazine “ijusi”.

“Ijusi is an experimental magazine first published in the early years following South Africa’s first democratic elections circa 1994. From the beginning ijusi posed an important question: “What makes me South African, and what does that ‘look’ like?”, gradually piecing together the various cultural dichotomies and social potentialities that have evolved following Apartheid’s demise.”
