In this latest podcast, Brett Murray describes his upbringing as a white person in apartheid South Africa, how the 1976 Soweto riots changed his life, how he used his art to help in the struggle against the apartheid regime, his self-exile in London and his triumphant return when the African National Congress was unbanned, how he set up a sculpture department at Stellenbosch University, his satirical artwork criticising the corruption and greed within the now ruling ANC, The Spear controversy and his recent, softer work looking at family and the impact of global warming.
