Description

Art and Justice: The Art of the Constitutional Court of South Africa documents and celebrates the artworks integrated into and collected for the Constitutional Court of South Africa. The book pays tribute to the extraordinary vision of the architects and judges of the Court who sought to bring together, in the most inspiring, innovative and dignified way possible, art and the workings of justice, and to give a public soul to the new Court building.

Working closely with the Constitutional Court Artworks Committee headed by Justices Yvonne Mokgoro and Albie Sachs, David Krut Publishing prepared the book as a companion volume to Light on a Hill: Building the Constitutional Court of South Africa.

Art and Justice: The Art of the Constitutional Court of South Africa is designed by Ellen Papciak-Rose and features photography by Ben Law-Viljoen.

Art and Justice: The Art of the Constitutional Court of South Africa serves as a record of the Court’s growing collection of paintings, prints, fibre art and sculptures and pays tribute to an extraordinary vision: to bring together art and justice in a building that would welcome all citizens of the country.

AVAILABLE ONLY AS A SET WITH LIGHT ON A HILL, DVD INCLUDED.
