William Kentridge, born in 1955 in Johannesburg (South Africa), is an internationally acclaimed artist who has a keen interest in animation films, theater and opera productions, as well as fine arts such as charcoal drawings, collages, and engravings. “Staging” is the keyword of his practice, which, in recent years, has evolved towards immersive and theatrical works, making him a total artist. A virtuoso of moving images, his politically and poetically charged works denounce apartheid and postcolonial history. Kentridge describes his practice as “political art, that is, ambiguous, contradictory, unfinished, oriented towards specific purposes: an art of measured optimism that rejects nihilism.”
