Associate artists discussing postcolonial society

South African artist William Kentridge is mostly known for his detailed black and white drawings and will now joins hands with Congolese dancer and choreographer Faustin Linyekula, performing as the associate artists of the Holland Festival. This is no coincidence as the work of both artists often refers to the colonial past to the countries they are from. Besides that they also both often work together with artists from their own environment: Kentridge at The Centre for the Less Good Idea in Johannesburg, and Linyekula at Studios Kabako in Kisangani. They will discuss their work, the differences between making art in Africa and making art in Europe, and the postcolonial society we are living in.
