Santu Mofokeng: Stories No. 1: Train Church

Sold out

Santu Mofokeng (born 1956) is one of the most vital artists to emerge from South Africa's late apartheid era. From his distinctive portrayals of township life to his acclaimed reassessment of the medium's documentary function, Mofokeng's intuitive and multilayered oeuvre continues to grow in relevance and reach.
