Strengths and Convictions – South African Nobel Peace laureates

This exhibition uses photographs, films and contemporary art to tell the story of South Africa’s Nobel Peace laureates: Albert Luthuli, Desmond Tutu, FW de Klerk and Nelson Mandela. It’s a moving tribute, with poignant moments captured, like the joyous meeting with Mandela (above), by George Hallett, 1994.

Strengths and Convictions is a dramatic way to tell the story of South Africa’s struggle towards democracy and focuses on the ordinary yet extraordinary lives of the four South African laureates.
It depicts how the lives of these four men converge and
divide as South Africa’s history unfolds.

The exhibition, from the Nobel Peace Centre in Oslo, is hosted at the South African High Commission in Trafalgar Square from 3rd December 2010 to 2nd January 2011.
