Published on the occasion of Pierre le Riche’s graduate exhibition at the University of South Africa, Broederbond considers a more inclusive ideal of Afrikaans masculinity in the new South Africa.
 
From the artist:
 
“This body of work is an amalgamation of my own experiences as a white Afrikaner male growing up in post-apartheid South Africa. It considers the Afrikaner society of the present, particularly focusing on masculine ideals versus homosexuality. The title, Broederbond, refers not only to the roots Afrikaner masculinity has in history, but also the potential for a more caring and accepting society: a true brotherhood.”
 
A limited edition of twenty, each catalogue is signed and dated by the artist.
