Leeto: A Sam Nhlengethwa Print Retrospective

Nhlengethwa began his career in 1976 during one of South Africa’s most tumultuous socio-political eras. In 1978, he completed a two-year diploma at the Evangelical Lutheran Church Art and Craft Centre, Rorkes Drift, Kwa-Zulu Natal, where printmaking was a prominent feature in the Centre’s activities.

Home to Johannesburg

Before I decided to leave Cape Town, I was depressed and saw no future for myself in the company I was working in. I took a R10 000 loan using my last pay slip after I had resigned (effective immediately) and went to a Poetry Festival in Kenya just to get away and go back to the drawing board.

The Precariousness of Black Despair

There are many intellectual arguments I can make about why voting legitimizes coloniality and colonial systems of governance but man(!) this is personal. This moves past the headspace and passed intellect to my life’s source. It tugs at the core of who I am and who I am not allowed to be.

Future Nostalgia

Future Nostalgia is an interrogation of the deep entanglement between the past and the presence. It is a project that seems to reflect the symbology of the Sankofa bird which is a mythical bird that flies forward while looking backwards.

A Tale of Two Fails

Martha Libuseng Lerumo is a survivor of domestic violence. She was sentenced to life imprisonment after she took the law into her own hands and killed her abusive husband.

Encounters: Documentary Heaven

The South African and African films are as compelling as their global counterparts. From the vivid specifics of underground Cape Town in the 1960’s and 70’s to the influence of Frantz Fanon on African thought, exploring heritage through dance to the ironic rigours required when raising money for a movie in the hermetic world of the film festival circuit, all the films speak cinematically about highly charged issues for South African audiences.
