William Kentridge is a South African artist best known for his prints, drawings, and animated films. These are constructed by filming a drawing, making erasures and changes, and filming it again.
Below are several short videos by Kentridge with a focus on philosophy and his process. Click here for a selection of longer works. The first video is based on the 2012 Charles Eliot Norton Lectures hosted by the Mahindra Humanities Center at Harvard, the book SIX DRAWING LESSONS is the most comprehensive collection available of Kentridge’s thoughts on art, art-making, and the studio. The following are self interviews, and conversations about making art.
