NEWS: Samson Mudzunga combines art and performance in a 'mazhakandila'.

'Any press release entitled 'There Are No Zombies Zwidudwane at Lake Fundudzi!' has got my attention immediately' writes Kathryn Smith, in a News story about an upcoming 'mazhakandila' (celebration) involving the art and performance of Northern Province artist Samson Mudzunga, planned for July 29 in Dopeni Shanzha Village. In Cape Town, 'The Politics of Art, Race and Censorship' is the subject of a panel discussion sparked off by Peet Pienaar's proposal to undergo circumcision as performance art. That's on Thursday.
