- "Ranging from resistance to education, contemporary artists are increasingly trying to define their role in relation to economic pressure, radical socical change and rapidly changing identities. How does the local contemporary art scene respond to the worldwide dynamics of globalisation? Which social, political and cultural positions do individual artists adopt? Positions: contemporary artists in South Africa presents views of some of South Africa's most prominent artists, writers, choreographers, photographers and musicians. Produced in direct dialogue with journalists and cultural scientists from the respective art scenes, developments within today's cultural flashpoints are illuminated in interviews, portraits and essays. Throughout, the focus is on the artists' individual perspectives, not theoretical or historical concepts; with their specific approaches and different forms of expression they give insight into the pressing issues of South African society, showing how political art is positioned in the post-apartheid era."--P.  of cover.
