  • Not on view

Women's organizations played a large role in the anti-apartheid movement, instigating campaigns such as the one this poster accompanied, protesting the forced relocation of black residents near Cape Town to Khayelitsha, a government-controlled township away from the city. Asiyi eKhayelitsha is Xhosa for 'We are not going to Khayelitsha.' Jonathan Shapiro (today known as Zapiro), the poster's graphic designer, is South Africa's leading editorial cartoonist.

How we identified these works

In 2018–19, MoMA collaborated with Google Arts & Culture Lab on a project using machine learning to identify artworks in installation photos. That project has concluded, and works are now being identified by MoMA staff.
