The Pasts and Presence of Art in South Africa: Technologies, Ontologies and Agents

McDonald Institute Seminar Room, Courtyard Building, Downing Street
From Oct 27, 2016 05:30 PM to Oct 29, 2016 05:30 PM
Global interest in South African art has concentrated on evidence of early human behaviour, as well as on the region’s rich rock art tradition. In the first case, the mere presence or absence of ‘art’ has been regarded as an important diagnostic of ‘modern’ forms of behaviour. In the second, rock ‘arts’ have been interpreted largely through a wealth of regionally derived ethnographies. However, contemporary South African art has long been explicitly political and engaged in projects of societal transformation.
