William Kentridge at the Mudam: More Sweetly Play the Dance

William Kentridge is known for his animated films that employ charcoal pencil drawings. Born in Johannesburg in 1955, Kentridge is active in multimedia, including performance art, theatre and opera, and is one of the most important artists of our time. His exhibition is currently on show at the Mudam: More Sweetly Play the Dance. It is dedicated to his new and recent works and includes sculptures, films and audiovisual installations in addition to drawings and works on paper. Remembering and forgetting, home and the uncertain, erasure and recovery: these are vast themes of creative processes in art that Kentridge describes with ease. Until 30 August.

Our suggestion

Visit the other current exhibitions at Mudam, such as "Leonor Antunes. joints, voids and gaps" in the Henry J. and Erna D. Leir Pavilion. A hanging structure made of steel and cords picks up on the octagonal shape of the roof and at the same time frames a group of sculptures by the artist Leonor Antunes.
