Over the course of his career, William Kentridge (Johannesburg, 1955) has created a body of work in which traditional media such as drawing, etching and stop motion animation become material with which to question the bases of visual representation in modernity, the relationship between image and narrative, and the nature of the cinematic.
The exhibition William Kentridge: Fortuna reconstructs and displays the dif- ferent paths taken by the artist in the process of forming a singular visual grammar, in which the artist’s subjectivity is inextricable from the recent his- tory of South Africa.
This collection is the memory and record of the exhibitions and projects car- ried out by the Museo Universitario de Arte Contemporáneo (MUAC) of the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México. It gathers critical texts, docu- ments, and images connected with the artists, themes, and curatorial ap- proaches that make up the museum’s program. It is offered as a public plat- form, diverse, concise, and accessible, of contemporary cultural production. On this occasion it appears under a joint imprint with Editorial RM.
