Moshekwa Langa

Av Lars Vilks - 21 september 2009 18:01


Moshekwa Langa is a visual artist working with drawings, installations, videos, paintings, and photography. He was born in 1975 in South Africa and attended different government schools in the then Lebowa area, part of a series of homelands created for different ethnic groups with an education system tailored to fit people from those places. In 1989, Moshekwa enrolled in the former Max Stibbe Waldorf School (now called Ubuntu Centre) in the greater Pretoria region. The Waldorf School was based on the philosophies of Rudolf Steiner and the anthroposophical societies. Upon completing his high school studies, he spent two years in a period of introspection and experimentation. He made drawings and sculptural works and wrote texts pertaining to his life and situation in the dawning new country. He also worked as a contributing producer on an arts and culture program called The Works for the South African broadcasting corporation. From 1997-98, Langa then attended the Rijksakademie van beeldende kunsten in Amsterdam.

He has participated in numerous public discussions and forums, television and radio specials, and his work has been presented in monographic and group exhibitions such as: The Johannesburg Biennale (1997), The Sao Paulo Biennale (1998), The Short Century: History and Liberation Movements in Africa 1945-1994 (Villa Stuck, 2001), Generation Z (P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center, 2002), Ars 01 (Kiasma, 2002), The 50th Venice Biennale (2003), Looking Both Ways (Museum for African Art, New York, 2003). His solo shows include: Live and in Person (The Renaissance Society, Chicago, 1998), Another Time, Another Place (The Goodman Gallery, Johannesburg, 2001), Present + Tense (Düsseldorf Kunstverein, 2004), Moshekwa Langa (Maxxi Museum, Rome, 2005), and The man who cast no shadows (Tache-Levy Gallery, Brussels, 2006), The 53rd Venice Biennale (2009).
