Inhalt The Visual History Lab at the Centre for African Studies takes place yearly. It is a learning format, which allows students to spend one week working intensively on a particular topic. The lab ends with a public event, which students organise themselves.
The Visual History Lab 2019 is concerned with the William Kentridge exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art (Museum für Gegenwartskunst) in Basel, which is on show between June and October 2019. William Kentridge is one of the most renowned and internationally recognised South African visual artists.
We will explore how 20th century South African history is addressed in Kentridge’s oeuvre, and situate him as an artist in the politics and aesthetics of South African artistic production, a critical domain in which questions of race, class and gender are negotiated in exciting and often provocative ways. Likewise, a Kentridge show in Basel will provide the opportunity to discuss if and how his art speaks to audiences in here, and in what ways the exhibition might invite us to think about the arts, race, class and gender in a Basel context.

Bemerkungen Students will have exclusive access to the Kentridge exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art. They will be able to speak to curators and museum workers about the making of the exhibition, the framework programme, visitor responses, etc. An invited curator and/or artist from South Africa (nn) will join the students as an interlocutor during the lab.
Concurrently students will prepare a public event scheduled for Saturday the 14th of September at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Basel.
