The nine articles in this special edition of Image & Text are derived from two institutions, namely the Department of Visual Arts at the University of Pretoria and the Faculty of Art, Design and Architecture at the University of Johannesburg. The articles reveal common areas of research such as identity, ideology, ethics, sustainability and the politics of representation in design and visual culture, yet also consider the ontology and epistemology of specific fields of endeavour. The first four articles are contributions from members of staff of the Department of Visual Arts at the University of Pretoria and reflect some of the research interests of the Department as well as engaging with the Centenary of the University. The Centenary was marked in May 2008 by two exhibitions curated by the Department of Visual Arts : Visuality / Commentary and X-ings : shaping culture through design.
