A guidare il lettore è il singolare incontro di un etnologo con il vecchio saggio Ogotemmeli, un anziano cacciatore cieco che, in una serie di colloqui svoltisi nel 1946, rivela tutto il sistema di pensiero del popolo dogon dotato di una cosmogonia, di una metafisica e di una religione tutt'altro che primitive e narra i miti e le leggende del suo popolo, i Dogon dell'Africa Occidentale. Le parole di questo "cantore" compongono un vero e proprio poema orale sulle origini dell'universo, una cosmogonia africana non lontana dalle grandi cosmogonie classiche. Il libro, pubblicato in Italia per la prima volta nel 1968, è qui riproposto in una nuova edizione nella collana "uomini e dei" curata e diretta dall'antropologo Francesco Paolo

Biografia dell'autore
 
 
 
Giotto Dainelli
(Firenze 19.5 1878 – Firenze 16.11.1968)
 
 
Giotto Dainelli, figlio del generale Luigi e di Virginia Mari, nacque a Firenze il 19 maggio 1878. Vantava ascendenze illustri: il padre era imparentato con i carbonari e patrioti bolognesi Zambeccari e Ranuzzi; la madre era figlia dell’avvocato Adriano Mari (1813-1887), politico della destra che rivestì importanti cariche istituzionali. Trascorse la sua infanzia lontano da Firenze, a seguito dei cambiamenti delle sedi di servizio del padre, ed ebbe modo di conoscere l’Europa data l’abitudine della famiglia di approfittare delle vacanze estive per compiere viaggi all’estero.
Nel 1900 si laureò in Scienze naturali all’Istituto di studi superiori di Firenze, dove fu allievo del geologo e paleontologo padovano Carlo De Stefani (1851-1924), all’epoca il più illustre docente della materia (fu direttore dell’Istituto di Geologia di Firenze e accademico dei Lincei); in seguito si perfezionò all’Università di

Descrizione libro: L'arte etnica è affrontata in molte visioni disciplinari: quella dell'antropologo, del sociologo, del critico e dello storico dell'arte, dell'economista, dello specialista in allestimento e restauro, dell'esperto in museologia, del collezionista e del mercante. Visioni che spesso non dialogano fra loro: lo scopo di questo libro è, invece, quello di eludere queste divisioni, proponendo una lettura interdisciplinare dell'arte etnica, che superi pregiudizi e chiusure preconcette, consentendo al lettore di dialogare con le diverse specializzazioni e interpretazioni. Il testo si presenta, quindi, come la silloge di contributi di diversi autori: Maurizio Biordi, Francesco Paolo Campione, Guido Candela, Alessandra Cardelli Antinori, Laura Carlini, Roberta Colombo Dougoud, Fabrizio Corsi, Paolo Figini, Francesca Marcantonelli, Fabiola Naldi, Iolanda Pensa, Antonello E.

Culture

Culture (from the Latin cultura stemming from colere, meaning "to cultivate")[1] is a term that has different meanings. For example, in 1952, Alfred Kroeber and Clyde Kluckhohn compiled a list of 164 definitions of "culture" in Culture: A Critical Review of Concepts and Definitions. However, the word "culture" is most commonly used in three basic senses:

    * excellence of taste in the fine arts and humanities, also known as high culture
    * an integrated pattern of human knowledge, belief, and behavior that depends upon the capacity for symbolic thought and social learning
    * the set of shared attitudes, values, goals, and practices that characterizes an institution, organization or group.

When the concept first emerged in eighteenth- and nineteenth-century Europe, it connoted a process of cultivation or improvement, as in agriculture or horticulture. In the nineteenth century, it came to refer first to the betterment or refinement of the individual, especially through education, and then to the fulfillment of national aspirations or ideals. In the mid-nineteenth century, some scientists used the term "culture" to refer to a universal human capacity.

In the twentieth century, "culture" emerged as a concept central to anthropology, encompassing all human phenomena that are not purely results of human genetics.

“Africa Remix” featured the work of over 100 African artists in a 2,200-sq.m exhibition space. With paintings by Chéri Samba, installations by Barthélémy Toguo, drawings by Frédéric Bruly Bouabré and photographs by Guy Tillim, “Africa Remix” revealed the varied facets of Africa’s contemporary arts scene.

The exhibition examined contemporary African art not only from an aesthetic angle but also from historical, political and ideological perspectives.

- Total pledges support for African art with the ”Africa Remix” exhibition in Paris -

So near, and yet so far: Africa is an enigma that continues to exert a strange fascination for many. “Africa Remix” was an invitation to reflect on what Africa really means – to explore and rediscover it by straying from the beaten path of commonplace ideas and platitudes. As Total has a strong presence in Africa, we are all too aware of the difficulties affecting the continent, but we’re also committed to bringing African culture the recognition it deserves.

Jazz, along with film and rock, one of the major artistic events of the twentieth century. This hybrid music marked the global culture of its sounds and rhythms.

The exhibition, designed by the philosopher and art critic Daniel Soutif, presented in chronological relations between jazz and graphic arts throughout the twentieth century.

From painting to photography, from cinema to literature, not to mention the graphic or comic book, the exhibition shows more particularly the development of jazz in Europe and France in the 30 and 40.

Histoire de l'Empire du Wagadu
http://www.soninkara.com/histoire-geographie/histoire/histoire-de-lempire-du-wagadu.html

Les arabes ont été les premiers étrangers à établir des relations avec l'ancien Empire Soninké du Ghana. Les premiers écrits aussi parlant de l'histoire de l'Empire du Ghana proviennent d'historiens et de voyageurs arabes de l'époque de l'empire. Ce document , traduit de l'anglais de l'auteur Nazif ADAMS relate l'histoire de l'Empire du Ghana racontée dans les écrits des historiens et voyageurs arabes de l'époque.

Introduction

Personne ne sait exactement quand la nation de l'ancien empire Ghana a été découverte. Ce qui est connu de nos jours provient des écrits des voyageurs arabes, marchands et historiens, qui ont été là-bas pour le commerce ou pour visiter. Cependant bien avant que les Arabes écrivent sur l'histoire des Africains, d'autres peuples anciens avaient décrit le continent.

Environ 520 avant J.C., on dit qu'un un roi de Perse, nommé "Cambyses", avait missionné des hommes pour découvrir le soudan (Afrique de l'ouest). Les résultats de leur découverte se trouvent dans les récits du grand écrivain Herodotus. Ils montrent que bien avant la naissance du Christ, les royaumes du Soudan avaient un modèle de civilisation de haut

" L'Art nègre ? Connais pas  " ! Picasso, 1920

I. Préambule

Au début du XXème siècle et plus précisément vers les années 1905-1907, des peintres commencèrent à collectionner des sculptures d'Afrique et d'Océanie. Qui sont ces collectionneurs de ce qu'on a appelé l' " art nègre " (terme qu'il faudra définir) ; comment, dans quel contexte, ont eu lieu les premières acquisitions ?
Cette première question en induit naturellement une autre : s'il y eut un engouement de prime abord (semble-t-il) " artistique ", qui étaient les premiers collectionneurs-marchands, nécessairement devaient être présents dans le circuit de ces acquisitions ?
Enfin, de manière plus générale, le dossier soulève en toile de fond, la question du changement de regard pour l'art africain et plus généralement l'art des " Autres " sous l'angle de l'impact de cet engouement du début du XX ème siècle. Peut-on esquisser une " trajectoire "

Africa under colonial rule, 1880-1935

Research Director
Professor A. A. Boahen (Ghana)

In February 1976, in Nigeria, a man was arrested at a police checkpoint between Ibadan and Lagos. He was carrying two bags full of bronze sculptures and wood on suspicion of having stolen it affirmât well as the owner. Upon inquiry, the man telling the truth. Recently converted to Islam, he lived and worked in Ibadan at a community center. The effigies of deities carved Yoruba he was carrying had been brought in Ibadan, like many others, by migrant workers to satisfy the spiritual aspirations of these artisans, shopkeepers, civil servants and other migrant workers in their temporary residence. But the leader of the community, having converted to Islam, began in turn to convert their neighbors. Converted in his turn, the suspect heard himself served as symbols of their ancient faith were to disappear to allow the community center to become a dwelling worthy of the spiritual presence of Allah. Unable to consider destroying these objects, he resolved to return to his village, place of origin, where they have since been resettled.

This incident is a perfect example of the evolution of cultural forms and their concrete manifestation and at the same time, the survival or the renewal of cultural values from specific forms of domination, whether of a religious or more clearly social. What remained true in 1976 was even more common during this period particularly dramatic external domination of Africa, which saw the submission of an entire people, its social

The Yoruba

The Yoruba people live on the west coast of Africa in Nigeria and can also be found in the eastern Republic of Benin and Togo. Because the majority of the slaves brought to the Americas were from West Africa Yoruban descendants can also be found in Brazil, Cuba, the Caribbean, and the United States. There are also many Yoruba currently living in Europe, particularly Britain, since Nigeria was once a British colony. The Yoruba are one of the largest cultural groups in Africa. Currently, there are about 40 million Yoruba world-wide. The Yoruba have been living in advanced urban kingdoms for more than 1,500 years. They created a strong economy through farming, trading, and art production. Their outstanding and unique artistic traditions include woodcarving, sculpture, metal work, textiles, and beadwork.

West Africans, such as the Yoruba, have lived in urban societies and have produced extraordinary art work since the 5th century BC. During this time, the Yoruba began to use iron to create metal tools and weapons such as machetes, axes, and hoes. These tools made it easier for the Yoruba to farm the land. They planted crops including yams, their staple food. They also harvested the seeds from the palm oil tree. The seeds from this tree produce a vegetable oil that is used for cooking. Kola nuts were also grown and harvested. Soon the Yoruba began trading with neighboring areas for rice and sorghum. Due to increased agriculture, the Yoruba community began to grow in size and large towns were created. They arranged their communities by clan lines, or extended families. Families who had the same ancestors lived next door to each other in large compounds. An elder was put in charge as the

The Metropolitan Museum of Art is an art museum located on the eastern edge of Central Park, along what is known as Museum Mile in New York City, USA. It has a permanent collection containing more than two million works of art, divided into nineteen curatorial departments. The main building, often referred to simply as "the Met," is one of the world's largest art galleries, and has a much smaller second location in Upper Manhattan, at "The Cloisters," which features medieval art.

Represented in the permanent collection are works of art from classical antiquity and Ancient Egypt, paintings and sculptures from nearly all the European masters, and an extensive collection of American and modern art. The Met also maintains extensive holdings of African, Asian, Oceanic, Byzantine and Islamic art. The museum is also home to encyclopedic collections of musical instruments, costumes and accessories, and antique weapons and armor from around the world. A number of notable interiors, ranging from 1st century Rome through modern American design, are permanently installed in the Met's galleries.

The Metropolitan Museum of Art was founded in 1870 by a group of American citizens. The founders included businessmen and financiers, as well as leading artists and thinkers of the day, who wanted to open a museum to bring art and art education to the American people. It opened on February 20, 1872, and was originally located at 681 Fifth Avenue.

As of 2007, the Met measures almost a quarter mile long and occupies more than two million square feet.

In one of the chaos of rocks the most amazing of Africa, has a population of farmer-warriors who was one of the last of the French domain to lose its independence.


For most whites in West Africa, the Dogon are dangerous men, if not the most backward of the Federation. Ilspassent to practice human sacrifice and even to defend themselves better against all the outside influences that they live a difficult country. Some writers have told their small fears when supposedly daring excursions. From these legends and the pretext of revolts often due to misunderstandings, it has sometimes taken in exile of entire villages.


In short, the Dogon represent one of the finest examples of primitive savage and this opinion is shared by some black Muslims who, intellectually, are not better equipped than whites to appreciate those of their fellow faithful to ancestral traditions. Only officials who have assumed the heavy task of administering these men have learned to love them.


The author of this book and its many teammates attend the Dogon past fifteen years. They published the work of these men who are now the people's best-known French Sudan: The Souls of the Dogon (G. Dieterlen, 1941), The Currency (S. OF GANAY 1941), Masks (M. Griaule, 1938) have brought to scholarly evidence that blacks lived on complex ideas, but ordered, on systems of institutions and rituals where nothing is left to chance or whim.
