Zanele Muholi (South Africa1972) is a photographer that challenges the history of the portrayal of black women's bodies in documentary photography work. Zanele Muholi's work deals with marginalized groups and multiple identities that come with 'being'. As a gender and sexual rights activist, and as a photographer, she confronts the notion that lesbian practices are alien to African cultures, and offers a radical break from stereotypical narratives about black female sexualities. During her residency the artist developed the project called Being (T)here. Where the photographer explores a (foreign) space and interact with it. Part of the project sees the artist "turning (her) own body into a subject of art", and part is the continuity of Faces and Phases focusing mainly on womyn loving womyn in Holland. In 2009 she was also Artist-in-Residence at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).
- Zanele also took part at the exhibition "Rebelle. Kunst & Feminisme
1969-2009" at the Museum voor Moderne Kunst Arnhem,
