Description

Contemporary South African literary journal carrying poetry, fiction, essays and graphics. 90% English, 10% southern African languages. Botsotso is a grouping of poets, writers and artists who wish to both create art as well as to generate the means for its public exposure and appreciation. We speak particularly of art that is of and about the varied cultures and life experiences of people in South Africa as expressed in the many languages spoken and written in our country. Botsotso is committed to a proliferation of styles and a multiplicity of themes and characters. Multidisciplinary art forms and performances are similarly embraced. The transition from a closed, authoritarian society to a pluralistic and democratic one offers artists an opportunity to explore the truths of our inner and social lives with a freedom that has not existed before. Flowing from this, the consequences and lessons of Apartheid must still be examined while the challenges of the current period throw up their difficulties, their complexities. Botsotso works with interaction: the different elements of the South African mosaic colliding, synthesizing – affected both by social forces and the individual’s uniqueness.
