This is a richly illustrated catalogue of a major traveling exhibition of acclaimed South African artist William Kentridge.
Kentridge's oeuvre revolves around how our identities are shaped through shifting ideas of history and place: it is an elegiac art that asks for the possibility of visual poetry in contemporary society - and provides a vicious satirical commentary on that society. It presents life as process rather than as fact, and constantly questions the impact of art.
This new Kentridge study includes critical and bibliographical entries; a unique anthology of critical writings on his work; extracts from a monograph on the artist and a new essay by Carolyn Christov-Bakargiev; excerpts from the artist's own writings; and a new essay by South African writer Jane Taylor.

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:
