Abstract:This special issue of 'Critical Arts' addresses the question of whether there may be 'new' ways of conceptualizing selfhood and otherness emerging in South African visual arts. Articles: Aesthetics, politics, identity: diasporic problematisations (Couze Venn); Displacing and deflecting otherness: the subversion of the dichotomised framework of self and other in Lawrence Lemaoana's 'Last Line of Defence' (2008) (Mary Corrigall); Making art in the wrong place: violence and intimacy in 'Speak English To Me' (Brenden Leam Gray on a dialogical art project conducted on the streets of Yeoville, Johannesburg in 2007-2008); 'Material girls': lingering in the presence of the material sublime (Amanda du Preez on recent works produced by artists Zanele Muholi, Nandipha Mntambo, Tracey Rose and Leora Farber); The intimate violence of Diane Victor's 'Disasters of Peace' (Bronwyn Law-Viljoen); The trauma of conceptualism for South African art (James Alexander Sey). Short articles: An unrecoverable strangeness: some reflections on selfhood and otherness in South African art (Sarah Nuttall in conversation with Penny Siopis); Dressed to thrill: the Victorian postmodern and counter-archival imaginings in the work of Mary Sibande (Alexandra Dodd); Hipper redacted (Ashraf Jamal on South African artist Mark Hipper); Athi-Patra Ruga and the politics of context (Anthea Buys).
