I’ve been looking at the work of South African artist, William Kentridge. I could look at his  drawings and prints endlessly.

He makes short  animated films from his prints and drawings. In the video below, he talks about the artist’s role in observing and depicting pain and suffering.


For more videos on Kentridge’s work – and for videos about other artists’ work – see the Art21 website (great resource).
