Dogg Pound Days
This exhibition is a visual inquiry into the unexpected growth of influential youth culture, rising from the infamous township of Soweto. Tearing down the monolith of Black stereotypes, Punk Rock and skateboarding keep the youth inspired and unafraid of pursuing their dreams in an environment that is not receptive to ‘white music and white sports.’
These unlikely role models from the band TCIYF have influenced their community and outsiders, bridging borders through what many may deem as anti-establishment and non-conformist forms of self-expression – much like the rebellious nature of great South African artists such as Brenda Fassie, Hugh Masekela and Lucky Dube, who rebelled against the Apartheid regime through their music. This group of punk-rockers continue to aspire and inspire young black children and adults from the townships to the suburbs.
