Description

Thinking aloud is a conversation between William Kentridge and German critic Angela Breidbach. Prompted by Breidbach’s questions, Kentridge discusses his philosophy of image making in which he combines political content with an individualistic mythology; photographed drawings, framed and re-photographed, serve as material for his animated films. The dialogue between Kentridge and Angela Breidbach in Thinking Aloud ranges from the development of central perspective in artistic space to contemporary film.

William Kentridge is a draftsman and film maker. He is known to an international audience since documenta X. By linking political content with individual muthology and by a process of photographing his framed drawings, changing and re-photographying them, he creates animated films – this being the specific fascination of his art. Angela Breidbach is an artist and image theoretician.

During their conversations, Kentridge and Breidbach reflect on the principles of perception of his work and discuss simultaneous and successive models of space which range from central persepctive to panorama to stereoscopy and their transmission to the medium of film. The conversations are inspired by Kentridge’s continuously emerging understanding of himself as an artist.
