Series
REALITY DOCUMENTARY MEETS THE ARTS
In this new series artists are encouraged to move across disciplines: 71 year old ex-Robben Island political prisoner and visual artist, Lionel Davis, navigates an Apple Mac as he collaborates with 20-something new media artist, Thando Mama. Controversial performance artist, Peter van Heerden, and feminist spoken-word poet, Malika Ndlovu, challenge all preconceptions as they create a public performance around the legacy of colonialism. Emerging sculptor, Nandipha Mnthambo, and fashion designer David Tlale create new shapes with cow-hide.
