WILLIAM KENTRIDGE: NO IT IS. Martin-Gropius-Bau, Berlin, 2016. Published by Verlag der Buchhandlung Walther Konig, Cologne. 250 pp. with 180 col. ills. 25 x 15 cm. ISBN 9783863359300 In English.
Although originally announced for distribution in the U.S.A. through D.A.P., with North American release slated for fall 2016, the title was later removed from D.A.P.'s listings. Publisher's description: No It Is documents two recent major presentations of work by South African artist William Kentridge (born 1955): his exhibition at the Martin-Gropius-Bau in Berlin and his performances at the Berliner Festspiele in summer 2016. This artist's book incorporates a libretto for a performed guided tour of the exhibition -- a performance which is both a guide to the exhibition and an exhibit within it -- and writings by or conversations with Kentridge about the two projects. The exhibition includes early drawings, animated films, installations, large-scale projections such as More Sweetly Play the Dance and theatrical pieces ranging from Winterreise, an evening of Schubert lieder, collaborations with the Handspring Puppet Company and chamber opera. In the performance series, titled Drawing Lessons, Kentridge discusses his working methods and his political context, from the Apartheid era to the present.
