This issue of Image & Text consists of articles that explore diverse examples of visual culture, including fine art, photography, film, and design. Moreover, it is noteworthy that five of the seven articles hone in on South African visual culture in particular. Two of the articles engage with the influence of apartheid politics on the creative production of Peter Clarke and Billy Monk (Hobbs and Rankin, Jamal), and three others take the post-apartheid landscape as point of departure: A short film by Teboho Mahlatsi (Watson-Seoighe), a community mural painting project (Le Roux and Costandius), and an article on Cape Town as World Design Capital 2014 (Cassim). The other two articles in this issue deal with the notorious Pirelli Calendar from 2011 (Karam) and an exploration of existentialism in selected films by Michael Haneke (Gouws).
