UBUNTU: Visual Arts Exhibition in Zankel Hall

Throughout the UBUNTU festival, visit Zankel Hall to celebrate the expression of South Africa’s visual arts community through the medium of printmaking. The displayed works were created in the city of Johannesburg and highlight the vibrant David Krut Print Workshop, which has fostered a creative community of emerging and established artists in South Africa for more than a decade.


David Krut Projects is active in New York, Johannesburg, and Cape Town as an alternative arts institution dedicated to encouraging awareness of, and careers in, the arts in South Africa and to promoting contemporary culture in a dynamic, collaborative environment. Having started as an art book publisher in South Africa, activities have grown to include exhibition project spaces, adjacent arts bookstores and print workshops located in Parkwood and Arts on Main in Johannesburg, as well as a satellite in Cape Town at the Montebello Design Centre. The Chelsea location was originally established in 2001 with an attached etching studio, and continues now as a gallery to show exhibitions by artists from Africa and the African diaspora.

David Krut Print Workshop (DKW) produces fine art limited edition prints with William Kentridge, Diane Victor, Deborah Bell, Senzo Shabangu, Stephen Hobbs, Quinten Williams, Maja Maljević, and a range of other local and international artists.
