A weird and wonderful art project in dystopic Johannesburg | World news | guardian.co.uk: "The mission of X Homes, however, was 'to change the perception of urban spaces, which many inhabitants of Johannesburg know only from rumours in the media, and to produce images beyond the projection of violence and fear ever present in this country'.

That didn't prevent us from having to sign a responsibility waiver form before the tour began. In a group of four we were led into a grim and grimy block of flats with graffiti and shattered windows."
