A Poem That Is Not Our Own

William Kentridge (1955) has won wide international acclaim as a leading contemporary artist working today. The South African visual artist, filmmaker, and stage director has built a sizable oeuvre that spans a broad range of media including animated film, prints and drawings, theatre productions, and sculpture. The exhibition showcases early graphic art and films from the 1980s and 1990s as well as examples of his more recent output, for the first time presented in Europe. The social and political conflicts in South-Africa and Europe are so being dealt with by the artist in this show.
