And with good reason — South Africa's 2012-2013 crime statistics were the worst in a decade, with increases in murder, attempted murder, violent armed robbery, and carjackings. Fear of crime has led to a boom in South Africa's private security industry since apartheid ended 20 years ago. The field's quick expansion is largely a result of continued social and economic inequality, increased violence, and inept police forces.

  • Art from Africa – the masks taking the art market by storm | DW Documentary

    Traditional African art is making a comeback at auction. There’s a huge demand for masks and statues, which are fetching record prices. But this demand is fueling art theft and counterfeiting. Over the last 200 years, Africa has lost countless important cultural treasures. Thousands of them have ended up in museums, private collections and galleries. Masks and unusual cult objects have always attracted European collectors. What is new is that African art is now often bought as a purely speculative investment. New excavations in the Nok tribal lands in Nigeria have unearthed centuries-old art that was lost because there was no written culture there, yet today many Nok artifacts can be found in museums from Boston to Brussels.

The Ellerman House art collection takes its visitors to this fine Hotel, on a journey that explores the huge social and cultural shift that South African art has made from the mid- nineteenth century to the present. The art in this collection tells of the character of our land and the expression of our unique South African experience. From the time of the early pictorial historians of the mid-19th Century, such as Thomas Bowler, one acknowledges that this country has a flavour of its own -- an essential nature that distinguishes it from other places. Communities in South Africa were extremely physically and culturally isolated from international centres of artistic innovation in the early 20th Century- a time before instantaneous globalization of today. The Ellerman House collection traces the progress of pioneering work done in the 1930s by a generation of artists, such as JH Pierneef, Maggie Laubser and Irma Stern, who were known as the New Group. Progressive identification by artists, such as Walter Battiss and Alexis Preller, with the essential nature of the land and its peoples- its Africanism, further reinforced the unique qualities of this land. The emergence of black pioneering artist like Gerard Sekoto and George Pemba began a process of cultural integration of the country's ethnic communities into a unified South African art. In the Ellerman Contemporary gallery, an eclectic, outspoken and energetic generation of current artists, such as Wayne Barker, Phillemon Hlugwani, Louis Maqhubela and Angus Taylor are pushing the boundaries of the ordinary in order to create work that explores relevant issues in post-modern South African society. The work of all these artists that can be seen in the Ellerman House collection, are an essential record of the spirit of the times in the development of a nation. The collection is extraordinary in that its almost 1000 works are exhibited as part of the unique artistic experience that one enjoys at the Ellerman House.

Traditional African art is making a comeback at auction. There’s a huge demand for masks and statues, which are fetching record prices. But this demand is fueling art theft and counterfeiting. Over the last 200 years, Africa has lost countless important cultural treasures. Thousands of them have ended up in museums, private collections and galleries. Masks and unusual cult objects have always attracted European collectors. What is new is that African art is now often bought as a purely speculative investment. New excavations in the Nok tribal lands in Nigeria have unearthed centuries-old art that was lost because there was no written culture there, yet today many Nok artifacts can be found in museums from Boston to Brussels. This documentary takes us to voodoo rituals in Togo, cult rites in Benin and to a European fair for primitive art. It also charts the way value is added on the route from poor wood carvers in Mali to prestigious auctions in Paris and New York. _______ Exciting, powerful and informative – DW Documentary is always close to current affairs and international events.

The WarkaWater Tower, which is easy and cheap to construct, uses no electricity and has the ability to produce up to 25 gallons of water in a day by capturing condensation and could be the answer to water scarcity in parts of the world that have little to no access to water. The design was influenced by his witnessing of the extreme conditions Ethiopian villagers have to undergo to get to water, and he hopes to install two towers there by 2015. We look at how the tower could address the issue of water scarcity, in this Lip News clip with Lissette Padilla and Mark Sovel. http://thelip.tv/show/the-lip-news/ More Playlists from TheLipTV: Newest Lip News playlist: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I16Y1858IdE&list=PLjk3H0GXhhGcjJDo6cQBCQprDMQyUQY3r&index=1 BUZZSAW interview clips - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wytp2oNdH-o&list=PLjk3H0GXhhGeWhHPas6M9sKUhThquDNOc&index=1 CRIME TIME clips playlist - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N2o6DP2x04E&index=1&list=PLjk3H0GXhhGeC9DbpSnIvd2i9BHh2dBvv BYOD (Bring Your Own Doc) Highlight Videos- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UnST8dGPRd8&index=1&list=PLjk3H0GXhhGeu2DCf6Ouo7hTsA5QB2MAL MEDIA MAYHEM short videos playlist - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6XFWYkzR0C0&index=1&list=PLjk3H0GXhhGcz4un-zws5sMlCLk3NNjDP https://www.facebook.com/thelip.tv http://www.youtube.com/theliptv
