Muholi´s work is profound and provocative with a whole corpus of images aimed specifically at one clear objetive: to make lesbian activism visible in South Africa. This activism faces a series of challenges both within and without South African Society but has made manifest its intention to persevere in a social and political context adverse to its normalisation. She creates the portrait seen from two angles: from the purely social perspective and the perspective of the sexual identity of a society thet is her home and that she portrays.
Muholi´s oeuvre posits many challenges to South African society as a whole. It is simultaneously an invitation, a celebration and a indictment. Her work forces us to question the nature and role of art as much as it demands we question what it means to be a woman in Africa who chooses to love another woman.
