The 10th Berlin Biennale is not interested in prescribed blackness

Amogelang Maledu, of the honours in curatorship class of 2018, writes on the 10th Berlin Biennale curated by South African, Gabi Ngcobo. Maledu looks at how Ngcobo refuses essentialist positions that will box her curation into stringent identity politics, identity politics that are often assumed because of her blackness.

We remember Bruce Arnott, Emeritus Professor of Fine Art

We remember Bruce Arnott, Emeritus Professor of Fine Art, who died on the 19th of July 2018. This is the note of thanks by Professor Pippa Skotnes on the occasion of his inaugural lecture in 2003. We reproduce this here as a small tribute to his remarkable contribution to Michaelis, the University of Cape Town and the students who were, in so many ways, shaped by his teaching. Many of Bruce’s sculptures can be seen on the university of Cape Town Campus, including in the Psychology department, on Memorial Hall plaza, and outside the administration building on Middle Campus.
