Imagining the City
Memories and cultures in Cape Town

This book explores the apartheid legacies of the city and demonstrates that cultural life flourished through peoples resilience in spite of adversity. Authors move beyond apartheid history to analyse the reflective ways in which people are coming to terms with that history through memory work, performance and memorialisation.
