Dogon, but still (N° 20902) Deposit sale

The image of the African continent was shaped by a feeling combining mistrust and fascination, which still prevailed when the ethnologist Marcel Griaule left for the Niger-Lake Iro mission in 1938-1939. Objects were brought back on behalf of a rich collector, Jean Lebaudy. Deposited at the Institute of Ethnology in Strasbourg in the 1960s, these pulleys, statues, and masks from multiple cultures became objects of study. Beyond the Dogon, the more global question of the perception of African art objects in Western countries is raised. This book, written in a multidisciplinary spirit, tells a story of the pieces collected, their conservation, their place in museums, and proposes to bring a different look on these objects.
