Politics....

In this selection of prints from The Artists' Press is work that relates to socio-political issues. These may be specific to South Africa such as Colbert Mashile's "Barometer" or broader such as "Hanneke Benadé's "No more bobby pins". South African artists have a long tradition of using imagery to pass comment on society and politics; often it is the only way that the arts get noticed in the chaos of contemporary life. The pencil and brush can be mightier than the pen.
