William Kentridge has drawn on the pages of the 1906 Cash Book of the East Rand Proprietary Mines Corporation, once one of the largest gold mining companies in South Africa. Anthropologist Rosalind Morris, who has researched the South African gold mines for many years, uses the cash book to generate a narrative account of the world of gold mining, drawing together stories of the migrant labourers and charting the flows of capital around the world.
