Between Us #01 invites academic, writer, and cultural theorist Ashraf Jamal (South Africa), to elaborate on the impact of digital on the way we experience art and to reflect on a selection of artworks presented during the 2021 ICTAF Digital Event.

Proposed by the Investec Cape Town Art Fair in collaboration with The Art MomentumJamal is a research associate at the Research Centre, Visual Identities in Art and Design at the University of Johannesburg, and teaches in the media studies programme at the Cape Peninsula University of Technology in Cape Town, South Africa. In 2018, he published In the World: Essays on Contemporary South African Art (Skira), in which he explored the challenges of South African artistic practice. Through the work of twenty-four visual artists, he returns to the national narrative of South African art, from identity politics to the boom of “African art” in the global contemporary art market.
