Into the BLACK takes up where Serge Alain Nitegeka's first monograph, Black Subject/s (2012), left off, tracing his work from his 100 Stools intervention at the Marabastad Refugee Reception Office through to his exhibition Black Passage in Cape Town, which saw the introduction of new colours to his strict palette, and his 2015 reworking of 100 Stools for the Göteborg Biennial. An essay by Allie Biswas examines the critical role played by movement within Nitegeka's art, and the migratory framework as elucidated by Mieke Bal, and discusses such reference points as works by Richard Serra and Richard Deacon and the buildings of Louis Kahn, who Nitegeka has cited as important to his development. Interviews with the artist conducted by David Brodie (2012) and Hansi Momodu-Gordon (2015) complete the book.
