The Constitutional Court Trust owns and maintains an extraordinary collection of artworks donated by prominent artists and other benefactors to celebrate the court’s role in South Africa’s transition to democracy. The collection was primarily assembled by Justice Albie Sachs, who practised as a judge at the Constitutional Court from 1994 to 2009. It includes artworks by such high-profile artists as Marlene Dumas, William Kentridge, Dumile Feni, Judith Mason, Willie Bester, Karel Nel, Cecil Skotnes, Hamilton Budaza, Kim Berman, Sue Williamson, Anton van Wouw, John Baloyi, Andrew Verster, Marc Chagall, and many others. The collection is more than an aesthetic addition to the Constitutional Court building – it is a unique collection of South African and international heritage that contributes to education, critical debate and research on the roles of the Constitution and the court.
The tour will take approximately 1.5 hours. Suitable for children 12 +
