From 2010 to 2015 Marion Boehm lived in Johannesburg and was involved in the town center of Bolo's community center. In her collages Marion Boehm takes us on a journey through Kliptown, the oldest part of Soweto / Johannesburg in South Africa. In her work she uses a variety of materials that are characteristic of life there: old newspapers, Shweshwe, fabrics, photographs from Kliptown, which she worked with pastel circles and graphite. She creates larger than life portraits of the people there and honors those who are often overlooked.
