Jeanne van Eeden and Amanda du Preez's is a timeous and earnest anthology. Endorsed by well-respected New York-based scholar of popular culture, Nicholas Mirzoeff, it is by and large academically sound in its motivation and articulation, and contains several extremely lucidly written, well-researched essays, which attest to the elasticity of the discipline of art history in the broader sphere of contemporary visual culture. Contributors to this publication draw from the cream of professional practitioners in South Africa, from countrywide lecturers in the related disciplines of visual culture, to professionals in the field.
