Statement by William Kentridge on Summer Graffiti
'I had been asked to do a fund-raising print for my old high school, and had looked for a suitable textook on which to do the images. In a second-hand bookshop I found a teachers' manual called 'Errors in School', which , with appropriate schoolboy regression, became 'eros in school', and a kind of erotic doodle. The series 'Summer Graffiti' was an extension of the print - a mixture of erotic dreams and sketching on blackboards, which either held the images or became part of them.'
