Title What do the videos of Thando Mama Communicate? - As a Black Contemporary Artist in South Africa
Author Gumbi, Bandile
Date 2011
English abstract
This paper aims to discuss the video art work of Thando Mama as an example of a black South African video artist. It takes in mind the reality that video art in South Africa has high entrance barriers due to the technological knowledge resources needed to practice thus becomes an elite art. The paper also contextualises video art within its historical practice as an avant garde art as well as its social development usage. Mama's videos are a tool to communicate identity issues as represented in contemporary art with a particular focus on the South African experience.
