This lecture examines William Kentridge (b. 1955, South Africa), a versatile artist whose work combines the political with the poetic. Dealing with subjects as sobering as apartheid, colonialism, and totalitarianism, he works in animated films, prints, books, collage, sculpture, and the performing arts.
Cara Starke (Assistant Curator, Department of Media and Performance Art) and Judy Hecker (Assistant Curator, Department of Prints and Illustrated Books) are co-organizers of the exhibition William Kentridge: Five Themes.
