Very excited about being among the list of super contributors for the inaugural issue of CIRCUS.

The launch evening [which is tonight] will also play host to the screening of CUSS webisode 4 after which I will play a set of wonky novelist tunes for CCTV a a new art space called King Kong in New Doornfontein - Johannesburg.


CIRCUS presents a playful and cheeky presentation of significant Joburg-based practitioners, in dialogue with themselves and the scene. Combining low-fi ‘TV’, interactive sound installation, dead tech slide show and experimental radio, CIRCUS borrows from the past, teasing out the new and the old, the digital and the analogue. It speaks to the centre and the periphery, and explores new spaces both in the physical and the virtual sense.

The first edition of 250 is designed by Anna Busdiecker (Berlin) and the cover is printed by master printers, Mark Thomann (Berlin) and Fananathi Media (Johannesburg).

Contributors include:
Lerato Bereng, Kemang wa Lehulere, Thenjiwe Nkosi, Reneilwe Mathibe, Malose Kadromatt Malahlela, Kim Gurney, Thato Mogotsi (with Kutloano Moagi) Rangoato Hlasane (with Fananathi Media), Mathoto Matsetela, Molemo Moiloa, CUSS Collective, Kim Gurney (with Elgin Rust), Anna Busdiecker & Mark Thomann and Vuyolwethu Seripe. The contributions span fiction, profiles, essays, scripts, Q & A’s, photo essays and speculations that are simultaneously playful and profound.

Support for this issue is provided by; Pro Helvetia, Stevenson Johannesburg, Chimurenga and Chemosol through placement of ‘ads’.
