The conventional political terrain in South Africa appears to be stalling on delivering the fruits of a democratic process. However, a new space for effective political activism on the ground has been opened up by women makers and artists. This lecture by Annie E. Coombes, author and Professor of Material and Visual Culture at Birkbeck College, University of London, explores the effectiveness women’s art practice in South Africa as alternative political space and argues that gender is a critical component in these art projects’ success.
