Kendell Geers: 1988 – 2012

Exhibition Walk-through 15.02.13 2013

The exhibition walk-through gives an overview of Kendell Geers' works, which are spread over the exhibition's three spaces. Geers' incendiary artistic practice is influenced by his background and early experiences growing up as a white Afrikaner in the volatile political environment of South Africa. At the age of fifteen, Geers joined the ranks of the anti-apartheid movement and thereafter developed a body of work that fuses the personal with the political, the poetic with the abject, and the violent with an erotic tension.
