Dan Halter

Dan Halter grew up in Zimbabwe and currently lives and works in Cape Town, South Africa. Issues of dislocation, displacement and transmigration - often in relation to the Zimbabwean diaspora - inform his video, installation and intermedia works. Halter has been involved in several residencies in, for example, Scotland, Brazil and Switzerland. His solo exhibitions include The Truth Lies Here (2012) and Double Entry (2010) at Whatiftheworld Gallery, Cape Town; Dan Halter / Mappa Del Mondo, Nassauischer Kunstverein Weisbaden, Germany (2011); Never Say Never, Derbylius Gallery, Milan, Italy (2008); and Take Me to Your Leader, João Ferreira Gallery, Cape Town (2006). Halter has participated in group exhibitions such as 17th VideoBrasil, São Paulo, Brazil (2011); Dak'art, Dakar, Senegal (2010); US, South African National Gallery, Cape Town (2010); Spier Contemporary, Cape Town City Hall (2010); and 10th Havana Biennial, Havana, Cuba (2009).
