Photography by Tzina Alimpoutaki-Joustra,

Around thirty South Africans artists presented at the exhibition `Rainbow Nation´ in The Hague until 30 September. The Netherlands.
In the Museum Beelden aan  Zee, on the Lange Voorhout ( The Hague ) and in the Kloosterkerk, The Rainbow Nation Contemporary South Africa Sculpture displays the colorfulness and variety of forms of contemporary art in South Africa.
A rainbow is made up from all kinds of different colours and only occurs under special conditions. These features also apply to the culture of South Africa. The country has eleven official languages at least as many different people and an extremely turbulent history.
The Rainbow Nation is a term that Nelson Mandela and Desmund Tutu used after apartheid was abolished.
They wanted to leave the racist past behind and show to the rest of the world the pride of the diversity of their mother country.
