These ten short animation films, that were made in between 1989 and 2011, marked Kentridge’s breakthrough on the international art scene. Also included in the exhibition was the film installation O Sentimental Machine (2015), featuring historical footage of Russian revolutionist Leon Trotsky. The exhibition took place during the Holland Festival, for which William Kentridge was Associate Artist.The exhibition also featured a number of large wall tapestries that Kentridge produced at a local weaving mill in Johannesburg.
