Edition No. 33

William Kentridge
Black Box / Chambre Noire, 2005

In his newest work especially commissioned for the Deutsche Guggenheim, William Kentridge concerns himself not only with German colonialism in Africa, but also reflects on constructions of history. In his installation Black Box / Chambre Noire, theater, film, animation, sculpture and drawing are combined in such a way that the viewer becomes an active participant.
Consequently, Kentridge’s limited edition for the exhibition is itself a “viewer” with which it is possible to view scenes from the installation and its constructions as if one was once again in the midst of its “real” presence.
The stereoscope is a replica of a 3D viewer such as was in common use around the turn of the century. The original model for this limited edition is a vintage stereoscope from the artist's own collection. Eight stereoscopic photographs staged by William Kentridge depict not only scenes from the installation, but also Kentridge’s studio during the production of Black Box / Chambre Noire.
