This de arte accommodates a broader audience and gathers scholars from a wider variety of heritages and allegiances than usual. An array of voices is assembled here, springing from diverse South African, continental European and British institutions, and articulating a multiplicity of disciplinary approaches: continentally oriented image studies; Anglo-American-inspired visual culture studies; art history; film studies; and philosophical aesthetics. However diverse, the articles all point at the complexities, fragility, fluidity and ambivalences of imaging processes, often related to inter-racial understandings and crossovers between race and gender. In doing so, they resonate with Laura Mulvey's work and confirm its pertinence in an era of plurality and digital imaging.
