This book, as the author 'showingly' writes in the introductory section, 'The look of this book', explores the intersection between 'art history, visual culture, and political theory and practice' in South Africa from the late 1960s to the present, by focusing on the impact of the Black Consciousness movement. Its central concern, as the title announces, is with the visual iconography, cultural, aesthetic and ideological legacy of Stephen Bantu Biko, the founder of the Black Consciousness movement, born in the Eastern Cape in 1946 and killed in police custody in 1977.
