DESCRIPTION

Internationally acclaimed writer Zoe Wicomb reads from her work - short stories and novels, set in both apartheid and post-apartheid South Africa - and reflects on key issues in relation to Peter Clarke's work.

Peter Clarke

One of the most accomplished and versatile visual South African artists, Peter Clarke was born in 1929. In his early twenties he declared that he would make his living as an artist, which was a highly unusual ambition for a young black South African at the time. Over the last sixty years, Clarke has reflected on his country's social and political history and is often referred to as the ‘quiet chronicler'. His work constitutes a subtle critique of apartheid and its social consequences as well as more recently, aspects of the ‘new' South Africa.
