1 September 2011-31 January 2012. This exhibition, entitled The Cold Choice: Operation Hunger, is organized in memory of the South African photographer Struan Robertson (1927-2011), a neglected artist in the history of South African photography, who died earlier this year.

On display is a series of image taken by Robertson during a project, the so called Operation Hunger, which brought him to travel over four years around South Africa during the 1980s at the height of the apartheid regime. Robertson documented the deep poverty of the rural populations of South African and their everyday battles to survive. During this project Robertson immortalized heartrending examples of poverty but produced also provoking images, which make viewers reflect on the harshly beautiful environment of rural areas and people
