He is the author of the internationally renowned The Black Atlantic, a path breaking historian of music and has written numerous books that nobody interested in the defining issues of our era can afford to ignore.
William Kentridge is a draftsman, performer and filmmaker, he is currently working on The Head and the Load which combines music, dance, film projections, mechanised sculptures and shadow play to tell the story of the millions of African porters and carriers who served the British, French and German forces during the First World War.
