The second half of the book shows work from all eight chapters, displayed in chronological order, offering a unique opportunity to view the progression of Mokgosi’s contemplation and investigation of democratic ideals. Mokgosi examines the ways in which democracy can be thought of as inscribed in the individual by various institutions and through processes of socialization and intersubjective exchange. As a result, Democratic Intuition reveals the inherent contradiction between one’s supposed individual freedoms and the necessary recognition of and interaction with the other in democracy. Drawing from history painting and propaganda, Mokgosi includes iconographic details in his compositions that may not be recognized or understood by a Western audience. By combining broadly legible themes with pointed, specific imagery, Mokgosi encourages a desire in the viewer to understand a history beyond what is already known.
