Focusing on the work of seven contemporary South African artists--David Goldblatt, Nicholas Hlobo, William Kentridge, Vivienne Koorland, Santu Mofokeng, Berni Searle and Guy Tillim--this scholarly and well-designed exhibition catalogue focuses on images and invocations of landscape that explore the country today. Differing from the usual approach to post-apartheid South Africa, the book addresses the complexity of the landscape, reflecting upon notions of memory, place and identity and referring to the political context and historical background of South Africa only through the imprint and trace of human experience on the physical landscape. It includes major new essays by Tamar Garb and Okwui Enwezor, alongside a specially commissioned text by noted Postmodern novelist Ivan Vladislavic, which explores the liminal territory between memoir, history and social analysis to reveal a city--Johannesburg--that is subtly yet insistently in a state of flux.
