“50 stories” explores the history of the Carlton Centre (opened in 1969) and the influence it had on the way of life during this turbulent period. As well as being one of Johannesburg’s only suburban malls, it was also one of the only places in the city where inter-racial socialising was permitted. The layout of the room pays homage to the Carlton’s 360-degree viewing deck over Johannesburg, which has been a witness to the transformation since the early 1970s.
