The catalogue for the large-scale exhibition NO IT IS! curated by Wulf Herzogenrath in the Martin-Gropius-Bau, Berlin. The spectrum of works presented here ranges from drawings through the famous animated films dedicated to Georges Méliès (2003) and Drawings for Projection (1989-2011) to the monumental film projection More Sweetly Play the Dance (2015) and the spatial installation The Refusal of Time, which premiered at the Documenta in 2012. The two “cabinets of wonders” to be seen in the Martin-Gropius-Bau lead into the atmosphere of the studio, the creative locus: Works from Kentridge’s collection, including etchings by Goya, Dürer and Hopper, are his source of inspiration, and correspond to his sketches, collages, and pictures, which proceed through various media in the course of the creative process, growing ever more complex.
