Published in the Supercontemporanea Series edited by critic and curator Francesco Bonami. "Each artist who is the subject of a monograph is presented in the simplest way possible, not in the coded language of art criticism but the clear words of life: because each contemporary artist tells us about life and the world we share." Bonami.

447 pp., 4to., colour illus., hardback, d.w., Cape Town, 2004. OUT OF PRINT
Fifteen writer/curators were asked to draw up a list of fifteen "top" artists that they would like to see included in a book focusing on "the cutting edge of comtemporary art production today, as informed by and shaped during the past 10 years of South Africa's emergence into the global art scene". Each writer was then allocated six or seven artists and asked to motivate their selections. "Most writers were keen to emphasise that the resulting list did not claim to represent 'the top hundred artists, but rather a selection that reflected multiple viewpoints and priorities, providing a broader view of contemporary production that seen before."

The fifteen writers are Emma Bedford, David Brodie, Thembinkosi Goniwe, Khwezi Gule, Sharlene Khan, David Koloane, Andrew Lampbrecht, Moleleki Frank Ledimo, Virginia MacKenny, Sipho Mdanda, Tumelo Mosaka, Tracy Murinik, Colin Richards, Kathryn Smith and Sue Williamson.

Artists selected include Jane Alexander, Bridget Baker, Bongi Bengu, Willie Bester, Willem Boshoff, Conrad Botes, Wim Botha, Kevin Brand, Lisa Brice, Peter Clarke, Steven Cohen, Marlene Dumas, Kendell Geers, David Goldblatt, Thembinkosi Goniwe, Kay Hassan, Stephen Hobbs, Robert Hodgins, William Kentridge, David Koloane, Dorothee Kreutzeldt, Terry Kurgan, Moshekwa Langa, Churchill Madikida, Noria Mabasa, Langa Magwa, Thando Mama, Senzeni Marasela, Kagiso Pat Mautloa, Santu Mofokeng, Samson Mudzunga, Brett Murray, Sam Nhlengetthwa, Vuyisa Nyamende, Sophie Peters, Johannes Phokela, Jo Ractliffe, Robin Rhode, Tracey Rose, Roderick Sauls, Claudette Schreuders, Berni Searle, Usha Seejarim, Durant Sihlali, Penny Siopis, Doreen Southwood, Guy Tillim, Clive van den Berg, Minnette Varí, Jeremy Wafer, Sue Williamson, Ed Young, Sandile Zulu, and many more.
