Rich in content and illustration, William Kentridge: Five Themes chronicles the full arc of Kentridge's career, with special emphasis on recent work. His films, drawings, prints, sculptures, and theatrical productions are represented in 239 color plates. Essays by the artist himself along with art historians and curators Michael Auping, Cornelia Butler, Judith Hecker, Klaus Biesenbach, Carolyn Christov-Bakargiev, Rudolf Frieling, and Mark Rosenthal illuminate Kentridge's work. An accompanying DVD created by the artist combines intimate studio footage with fragments from significant film projects, offering a fascinating look at how his ideas evolve from raw concept to finished work.
