"In this chapter I explore the ethical implications that arise in the artist's attempt to redraw the lines of South Africa's post-apartheid cultural and political landscapes. In reconfiguring the lines that trace out patterns of meaning and paths of communication, the arts play a transformative role in calibrating the socio-political space of reconciliation. The chapter thus raises the question of what a post-apartheid aesthetic might entail. In the course of my discussion I make particular reference to the work of contemporary South African artist, Willem Boshoff."

Peffer (J.) ART AND THE END OF APARTHEID,
339 pp, b/w & colour illus., paperback, Minneapolis, 2009. OUT OF PRINT
John Peffer considers the work of mostly black (and some progressive white) artists in South Africa, especially during the period between 1976 and 1994. He examines the ways that the struggle against apartheid affected the social milieus and the choices of representational forms available to black artists, explores the development of modernist art among black artists and shows how, through a cosmopolitan and non-racial art practice, progressive artists helped to undermine apartheid and model a future, more democratic society.

"'Art and the End of Apartheid' is at once an accomplished account of the world of progressive art practice in the last decades of white rule, a subtle exploration of the struggle for a nonracial aesthetic, and a compelling chapter in the unfinished history of black modernism in South Africa. But more than this, it is a major contribution to our understanding of the crisis of representation and imagination that haunted the apartheid regime from start to finish." Jean Comaroff

John Peffer is lecturer in art and art history at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland. He is editor of "Critical Interventions: Journal of African Art History and Visual Culture".
