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
