Pende Visions of Africa (N° 19480) Deposit sale

Although many societies in the Congo were once famous for their masquerades and architectural sculptures, these phenomena have only been studied as living traditions among a handful of peoples, notably the Pende.
Drawing on the extensive fieldwork of many researchers since the 1950s, this text offers a unique window on the contexts of dynamic performance in masquerade and architecture in Central Africa. It privileges as much as possible the voices of La Pende and seeks to understand the interrelation between ritual practice and aesthetic form. Attentive to history, the text also shows that these artistic practices have responded (sometimes unpredictably) to colonial and post-colonial pressure.
