Exploring various topics such as history, family, migration, or colonialism, William Kentridge's creative process always starts with a drawing. With works on display spanning over 40 years of artistic production, including drawings, animated films, videos, prints, sculptures, tapestries and large-scale installations, this is the largest presentation of his work to date.

Why should I hesitate: Putting Drawings to work

The uncertain and imprecise way of constructing a drawing is sometimes a model of how to construct meaning... The ethical and moral questions... in our heads seem to rise to the surface as a consequence of the process.
