Spatial apartheid refers to the deliberate act of putting marginalised peoples in remote areas that make access to economic, social and educational opportunities difficult. This was implemented through the Land Act of 1913 and 1950 Group Areas Act. Families and communities were uprooted from their homes to the outskirts of South Africa's major cities.
As a result, communities were and continue to be subjected to coerced migration, overpopulation, homelessness, landlessness, underdevelopment, long-distance commuting and displacement.
Below, Arts24 profiles photographers who make visible the consequences of spatial apartheid.
