Publisher's Description
In 1991, the city of Zoetermeer in the netherlands built a tubular bridge and named it after nelson Madela. Jan Dirk van der Burg crossed this bridge hundreds of times during his adolescence—it was the shortest way to the only coffee shop in town. The uncanny experience of associating infrastructure with an icon of social justice intrigued the artist and his partner, Stefanie Gra¨tz. They set out to photograph every tribute to the South African leader in the netherlands—every square, park and school. This slim and beautifully designed book, with color images and lively teal accents, documents each tribute with its location, date of inauguration and an explanatory text from the authors. Also included is a conversation with Dutch antiapartheid leader Conny Braam that maps Dutch postcolonial identity as the very country that once accused Mandela of terrorism now immortalizes him in brick, concrete and faded aluminum.
