278 pp., b/w & colour illus., paperback, Johannesburg, 2012. R225
An anthology of personal stories and images about walking, movement and migration on the African continent.

It stands as a bridge between the project, Migration & Media and its last iteration in Bamako 2011, and an evoloving Shoe Shop exhibition to be held in greater Johannesburg in 2012, which will address walking and movement as literal and conceptual spaces. Migration & Media started in 2006 in Frankfurt am Main, Germany. It has since been variously realised as film, literature and visual arts platforms under the label, Migration & Media. Within this context European and African artists and academics were invited to think about the perception and self-representation of migration issues in the arts." from the foreword

He then registered for a BA degree in Fine Arts at UNISA in 1954 while teaching at Loram Bantu Secondary School in Durban. He also attended Neil Sacks’ general art classes offered at the Bantu, Indian and Coloured Arts Group in Durban (BICA) and studied art privately under Julia Norman, David McNab and Nils Solberg.

In 1957 Mvusi received an award from the Ella Lyman Cabot Trust which enabled him to study in Pennsylvania and Boston. In 1961 he started teaching at Clarke College, Atlanta, Georgia. Apartheid legislation passed in South Africa and the Sharpeville shootings made him decide against returning to South Africa. Instead, he and his family moved to Southern Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe) where he taught art. From 1962 to 1964 he lectured in the Faculty of Fine Arts at the University of Science and Technology at Kumasi in Ghana. In 1965 Mvusi was appointed as a senior lecturer in the Fine Arts Department at the University of Nairobi. He died in Kenya in 1967.
