Contemporary Political Art in Zimbabwe
Today's New York Times has an article on the shuttered exhibit of Zimbabwe artist Owen Maseko, whose installation of paintings and sculptures depicts the mid-80's slaughter of thousands of minority Ndebele citizens at the hand of government-controlled paramilitary forces. Maseko faces up to 20 years in prison for insulting President-for-life Robert Mugabe.
