La photographie permet encore de belles redécouvertes. Car il faut bien parler de redécouverte, voire révélation, en ce qui concerne l'œuvre photographique de Casimir Ostoja Zagourski, dit Zagourski (1880-1941). Originaire de Pologne, Zagourski fut l'un de ces nombreux photographes inconnus des diverses ethnies de l'ancien Congo belge, vaste territoire qu'il parcourut en tout sens. Les êtres qui, là, se dressent devant nos yeux éblouis, appartiennent à un autre âge, un âge ou l'Afrique n'était pas encore domestiquée par les puissances coloniales, une époque faite de rites et de traditions qui ne manquent pas de laisser sur chaque corps les traces de son appartenance communautaire. Une Afrique, enfin, qui se sachant en voie de disparition regarde avec malice et effroi celui qui, une dernière fois, enregistre leurs us, leurs coutumes, masques et tenues, leur quasi-nudité. Reproduite avec un soin maniaque, chacune de ses images noir et blanc offre donc un extraordinaire voyage à travers le temps. L'ensemble est complété d'un texte introductif sur les conditions de création puis de redécouverte de cette œuvre atypique. --Damien Sausset

« L’art primitif a influencé tout l’art contemporain.
C’est normal qu’il ait un prix. »(Jeune marchand parisien)
 
« Noirs désirs » [Télérama, 26/06/2003], « Bas les masques » [Libération, 1/07/2001], « La ruée vers l’or noir » [Le Figaro, 2/07/2001], « Les sortilèges de l’art africain » [Le Figaro, dossier Patrimoine, 26/10/2001], tous ces titres (et d’autres non moins accrocheurs) ont annoncé et suivi la dispersion aux enchères publiques en juillet 2001, soit un an après sa mort, de la collection d’art primitif d’Hubert Goldet, grand amateur et cofondateur de la revue ArtPress. La vente, qui avait duré deux jours et attiré amateurs, marchands et curieux d’Europe et d’Amérique, avait joui d’un énorme succès : 644 lots proposés et vendus pour la somme de 88,4 millions de francs avec les frais soit 13,5 millions d’euros. Cet événement témoigne, s’il en est encore besoin, que ce domaine de l’art, l’un des derniers découverts par l’Occident, n’est plus confidentiel et déborde le cadre du petit monde des initiés. Depuis son ouverture en avril 2000, le pavillon des

Les Statues meurent aussi est un documentaire-court métrage français réalisé par Chris Marker, Alain Resnais et Ghislain Cloquet sorti en 1953. Conseiller artistique : Charles Ratton.

Il fut commandité par la revue panafricaine Présence africaine. Partant de la question « Pourquoi l’art nègre se trouve-t-il au musée de l’Homme alors que l’art grec ou égyptien se trouve au Louvre ? », les deux réalisateurs dénoncent le manque de considération pour l'art africain dans un contexte de colonisation. Le film est censuré en France pendant huit ans en raison de son point de vue

Anthropologie de l'art

L'anthropologie de l'art est une science sociale qui s'attachait historiquement à étudier les productions plastiques et picturales des sociétés humaines dites « traditionnelles », « sans écriture » ou « primitives ». À l'instar des autres disciplines connexes ou relevant de l'anthropologie (comme l'ethnologie et la sociologie), on assiste ces dernières décennies à un élargissement de son champ d'étude, et elle correspond plutôt aujourd'hui à une analyse culturelle et symbolique de la production artistique sous toutes ses formes.

L'anthropologie de l'art se distingue de la sociologie de l'art en ce sens qu'elle privilégie non pas la dimension économique, politique ou médiatique des productions artistiques, mais qu'elle étudie plutôt la signification que celles-ci peuvent prendre dans leur culture d'origine; elles ne sont pas non plus étudiées pour leur valeur intrinsèque, comme ce serait le cas dans une critique d'art.

La question de l'objet

L'anthropologie de l'art se trouve dès ses fondements confrontée à une question épistémologique simple : Qu'est ce que l'art ?

Après de nombreuses tentatives pour résoudre cette question, c'est Erwin Panofsky qui a finalement

“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.

Africa Remix

Under the artistic direction of Simon Njami (photo), an international team of curators (see dates and facts as well as the photo) has assembled this overview of the artistic production in Africa and the African diaspora. 88 artists show works from the last 10 years, among them several specially

Mali Empire

The Mali Empire or Manding Empire or Manden Kurufa was a West African civilization of the Mandinka from c. 1230 to c. 1600. The empire was founded by Sundiata Keita and became renowned for the wealth of its rulers, especially Mansa Musa I. The Mali Empire had many profound cultural influences on West Africa allowing the spread of its language, laws and customs along the Niger River. The Mali empire extended over an area larger than western Europe and consisted of numerous vassal kingdoms and provinces.

Manden

1235-1600's. The Mali Empire grew out of an area referred to by its contemporary inhabitants as Manden. Manden, named for its inhabitants the Mandinka (initially Manden’ka with “ka” meaning people of), comprised most of present-day northern Guinea and southern Mali. The empire was originally established as a federation of Mandinka tribes called the Manden Kurufa (literally Manden Federation), but it later became an empire ruling millions of people from nearly every ethnic group in West Africa.

Etymology

The naming origins of the Mali Empire are complex and still debated in scholarly circles around the world. While the meaning of “Mali” is still contested, the process of how it entered the regional lexicon is not. As mentioned earlier, the Mandinka of the Middle Ages referred to their ethnic homeland as “Manden”.

André Breton

André Breton (February 19, 1896 – September 28, 1966) was a French writer, poet, and surrealist theorist, and is best known as the principal founder of Surrealism. His writings include the Surrealist Manifesto of 1924, in which he defined surrealism as "pure psychic automatism".

Biography

During World War I he worked in a neurological ward in Nantes, where he met the spiritual son of Alfred Jarry, Jacques Vaché, whose anti-social attitude and disdain for established artistic tradition influenced Breton considerably. Vaché committed suicide at age 24 and his war-time letters to Breton and others were published in a volume entitled Lettres de guerre (1919), for which Breton wrote four introductory essays.

From Dada to Surrealism

In 1919 Breton founded the review Littérature with Louis Aragon and Philippe Soupault. He also connected with Dadaist Tristan Tzara. In 1924 he was instrumental to the founding of the Bureau of Surrealist Research.

Il a subi l’influence d’un père que tout passionnait : la poésie, la philosophie, la musique (une des ses oeuvres fut créée à Seattle en 1985) ou la science (il obtint son doctorat en biologie à l’âge de 47 ans).

Collectionneur à la suite de son beau-père Josef Mueller, il s’oriente vers les arts « non occidentaux ». Avec sa femme Monique, il crée en 1977 le musée Barbier-Mueller, qui organise plus de soixante-quinze expositions, la plupart accompagnées d'importants catalogues, présentant les différentes sections de la collection familiale, avec la collaboration des plus grands musées d’Europe, d’Amérique et d’Asie.

es Statues Also Die is a French documentary short film directed by Chris Marker, Alain Resnais and Ghislain Cloquet released in 1953. Artistic Advisor: Charles Ratton.

It was sponsored by the Pan-African journal Presence Africaine. Starting from the question "Why art negro is there at the Museum of Man while Greek or Egyptian art is the Louvre? ', Both filmmakers denounced the lack of consideration for African art in a context of colonization. The film was censored in France for eight years because of his views anti-colonialist.

"When men are dead, they make history. When the statues are dead, they enter into art. This Botanical death is what we call culture.

Because the people of the statues is mortal. One day, our stony faces break down in turn. A civilization is leaving behind traces such as mutilated stones of Tom Thumb, but history has eaten everything. An object is dead when the living gaze which rested on him has disappeared, and when we lost our items will go where we send those negroes in the museum.

Art negro. We look as if it was his purpose in the pleasure it gives us. The intentions of the negro who created the emotions of the negro who looks at it, it eludes us. Because they are written into the woods, we take their ideas for statues, and we find the picturesque where a member of the black community sees the face of a culture.

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.
