La passion de l'origine (N° 24726) Deposit sale

At the turn of the first two centuries, the encounter with Negro art awakened European art at a time when it was dying of a slow amnesia; but his entry into the museum also ignited the war between aesthetics and anthropology. The vehemence and recurrence of such discord first demanded a critique and the statement of rigorous criteria allowing us to locate ourselves in a new landscape. But the taste for the simplest and the most archaic, the tenacious digging down to the material and maternal heart of things that characterize what is called the "first arts", continue to work Contemporary Art, to the point of constituting, can -to be, more insistent than the others, a sign of the times. The African continent still remained for many "a big hole on the map of the world" (Sartre) is nevertheless the birthplace of humanity; but it is only in the works to which he gave birth that the power of his genius manifests itself. In it lies the secret of black identity and partly that of the West. It is to this genealogy of this original passion that this text is first devoted.
