Through these themes the exhibition links into the occasion of 30 Years of Democracy in South Africa.

The artists, MADEYOULOOK is a Johannesburg based interdisciplinary artist collaborative between Molemo Moiloa and Nare Mokgotho. The Institute for Creative Repair has been appointed to develop and manage the South African Pavillion and is led by two pioneering women, Makgati Molebatsi and Veronica King.
