William Kentridge is an exhibition catalogue focusing on the acclaimed films, drawings, and theatrical productions of this important contemporary South African artist. Kentridge's work explores the complex and often violent history of his native South Africa, and considers the effects its past will have on its future. The exhibition will present eleven of Kentridge's powerful and intensely complex animated films. Approximately forty large-scale charcoal drawings, many used in the making of the films, will be shown alongside the film projections.

Examining the black and white animated films of William Kentridge, this volume discusses the political and philosophical dimensions of drawing, a term the artist applies equally to his works on paper, film and theatre productions. It surveys Kentridge's work within a broad historical and geographic context of politicised art practices while analyzing the formal innovations of his animation techniques.About the Author:
