228  ANTON KANNEMEYER / SOUTH AFRICA: ALPHABET OF DEMOCRACY, 2005-2008 With satire as his instrument, the (white) South African Anton Kannemeyer has turned the focus on racism in Africa. Since 1992, when he launched the comic book publication Bitterkomix with his colleague Conrad Botes, Kannemeyer has been an acerbic critic of South African society. In Alphabet of Democracy, too, the comicstrip idiom stages its criticism comically – and controversially. The project has been in progress since 2005, and the idea is that enough letters are to be made to form a whole alphabet whose critique of the system and racism points far beyond the borders of South Africa.
