William Kentridge: Enough & More Than Enough

Acclaimed South African artist William Kentridge has worked in a variety of media, from printmaking and opera to animation and film.

Here, he muses upon drawing, posing questions such as: Why draw? What so artists do when they make drawings, and how do drawings emerge? What leads, prompts, and shapes a drawing into what it becomes? What does it mean to draw? What is the relation of a drawing to the world? What does the drawing—and the artist—do when they leave the studio?

Featuring a screening of a new small film made for this lecture, Soft Dictionary.
