'Art in Dark Times'
From 1952 to 1981, South Africa's white supremacist government ran an art school at Ndaleni for the training of black art teachers. It was by far the single largest art school on the African continent during the years of its operation. This talk explores the logic that underpinned art education under apartheid, and especially how art came to mean something profoundly different than the government intended for the hundreds of teachers who studied at Ndaleni.
