Africa Marx the spot
Stevenson Gallery, Cape Town Opens Thursday, 6pm Runs until February 27 Free entrance
We have seen in our own South Africa how people have become increasingly disillusioned with the failings of capitalist democracy. Socialism has not only become the keystone of movements such as the Economic Freedom Fighters’, but has undoubtedly informed key idealogies for the ANC.
Just look at the plethora of berets at political rallies and you will know that communist ideas – especially those pertaining to the upliftment of the disenfranchised – are alive and well.
Meleko’s exhibition is sure to be an interesting, relevant conceptual work.
Go see it. – Grethe Koen
