En pays Dogon (N° 22401)

In the middle of the 20th century, the discovery of the culture and art of the Dogon of Mali profoundly upset knowledge of the history of Africa. The origin myths and the worldview of the Dogon have proven to be as rich and complex as ancient European accounts, and at the origin of the most varied and inventive art on the African continent. Some sculptures are among the oldest known works in Africa, relating to the migrations of medieval times and the populations in contact in the region for almost a millennium. The statuary whose stylistic characteristics have been identified, the rigorous workmanship of the masks, the stripped functionality of the architecture highlight the omnipresence of cosmogony in the daily life of the Dogon. The arts, the language and the Dogon society are still today subjects of research and passionate debates which continue to confer on the history of Africa an undeniable historical depth and an unsuspected metaphysical dimension if not denied for centuries. This special edition is organized into eight modules, which cover Dogon statuary in its plastic, historical, symbolic and functional dimensions.
