From the publisher: 
  
“I Am Not Me, The Horse Is Not Mine (a Russian peasant expression used to deny guilt) contains a series of essays, lecture notes and commentary by William Kentridge on the eight films and performance event first presented to international acclaim at the Sydney Biennale in 2008. 
  
"The event comprises a multi-channel projection installation of eight film fragments entitled I am not me, the horse is not mine. Based on the absurdist short story, The Nose (1837), by Nikolai Gogol, the installation transfixes with its mixture of self-reflective fragments, absurd cut-outs, instrumental and vocal soundscapes and projections. I am not me, the horse is not mine takes the short story, its earlier history, and its possible histories as a basis for looking, as Kentridge writes, ‘at the formal inventiveness of different strains of Russian Modernism and the calamitous end of the Russian avant-garde’.”
