Import-Export of Contemporary African art: The Dakar Biennale and Wikipedia as systems of knowledge distribution and sharing


Published on

Import-Export of Contemporary African art: The Dakar Biennale and Wikipedia as systems of knowledge distribution and sharing. Presentation at INHA Paris, 13/11/2013. Invitation by Maureen Murphy. Séminaire Histoire des arts de l’Afrique: L’institutionnalisation de l’histoire de l’art en tant que discipline, est indissociable de la constitution d’un récit national, voire nationaliste. Ce séminaire interrogera les modalités d’ouverture de ce champ aux arts dits « autres », en portant une attention particulière aux arts d’Afrique. La question du primitivisme et de l’art brut sera abordée, de même que l’ouverture plus récente aux arts contemporains.
