William Kentridge Kunstmuseum Basel

Designed in close consultation with the artist, "A Poem That Is Not Our Own" showcases early graphic art and films from the 1980s and 1990s as well as examples of Kentridge’s more recent output, including the first adaptations for museum presentation of elements from "The Head & The Load," which premiered at the Tate Modern, London, in 2018. A production involving film projections, shadow play, and an ensemble of performers, the sprawling procession, which defies conventional genre boundaries, sheds light on a neglected chapter of history: Africa’s role in World War I. Taking up three exhibition floors at the Kunstmuseum Basel | Gegenwart, the presentation balances additional major video installations such as "More Sweetly Play the Dance" and "Shadow Procession" with selections from Kentridge’s graphic oeuvre.
