Further Biographical Context for Christo Coetzee
Born in 1929, Christo Coetzee's creative work was primarily inspired by the 1930s. The period of the 1930s is characterised by the conflict between a number of political ideologies, including Marxist Socialism, Capitalist Democracy, and the Totalitarianism of both Communism and Fascism.
