Fritha Langerman

Associate Professor at the Michaelis School of Fine Art, Fritha Langerman's (MFA Cape Town) research interests include the scientific representation of the body, curatorship and the display and ordering of information. Her most recent exhibition, Subtle Thresholds, was presented at the South African Museum (2009–2010) and concerned the representational taxonomy of infectious disease. The challenges of the display of natural history within a contemporary world continue to drive her production. She is currently completing a PhD, titled The Exploded Book: a Disarticulation of Visual Knowledge Systems within Sites of Display in Fine Art.
