Joris Visser

Joris Visser's passion for African art started at a young age—his father, Jan Visser was the curator for African Art at the Tropenmuseum. Studying Art History and Anthropology at the University of Amsterdam, Joris wrote his thesis on the legitimisation of African art in Western museums. He has since participated in all the 'tribal' art fairs of Paris, New York, San Francisco, and Brussels, over the last 25 years. Joris is now currently the 'tribal' art expert at Dorotheum, one of the world's oldest auction houses.
