William Kentridge studied and then taught printmaking at the Johannesburg Art Foundation. Since the mid 1970’s he has created a substantial body of editioned work.
David Krut published the first editions of William Kentridge in 1992.
In 1997 David Krut published a CD Rom on Kentridge, which was the first major publication on his work, presenting sections from his videos and also Kentridge talking about aspects of his work up until that time. Click here.
In 2002 David Krut Print Workshop (DKW) was established in Johannesburg, and in 2010 a further workshop was opened at Arts On Main where Kentridge has a major studio.
We continue to collaborate with the artist in both the publishing of his print editions (and also in publishing books on the artist’s work, and William Kentridge Prints was a book published in 2006 which provides an overview of the artist’s editions up to that time.
