Appropriated Landscapes

Appropriated Landscapes (2011) explores the landscapes of Southern Africa, through photography and video from artists including Santu Mofokeng, Jo Ractliffe, Penny Siopis and Guy Tillim. By examining the effects of war, migration, colonisation, industrialisation and ideology on South Africa, Namibia, Angola and Mozambique, this book reveals the varied histories of these regions and their peoples. Landscape–both in Southern Africa and beyond–shows itself as ultimately a construct of the mind, composed as much from strata of memory as from layers of rock. With a curatorial essay by Corinne Diserens (ed.), and textual contributions by each artist.

406 pages, 207 tritone plates; 24 cm x 32 cm; Cloth-bound hardcover with dust jacket; ISBN 978-3-86930-387-1; Published by The Walther Collection / Steidl in June 2011
