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.
