The art of South African artist Kendell Geers (born 1968) deploys a gamut of media--installation, performance, sculpture, readymades, painting, video--to reflect on media violence and the social body. This book, the third in a series of interviews with key cultural figures by curator Jerome Sans, collects conversations and essays by the artist.

By blowing up museum walls and burning down public monuments, Kendell Geers made a name for himself as an aesthetic agitator. His works are powerful environments of terror and violence, eroticism and poetry. This is the first compilation of writings and interviews with art critics, historians, artists, from 1989 until the present in which South African born, Belgium artist Kendell Geers, as a socio-political, cultural-activist, artist, conveys a unique insight and historical perspective on his work and his engagement through art.
