IncarNations. African Art as Philosophy

Bozar, Centre for Fine Arts, Rue Ravensteinstraat: Brussels, Belgium

June 28, 2019 - October 06, 2019 Exhibition June 28, 2019 October 06, 2019 Europe/London IncarNations. African Art as Philosophy Bozar, Centre for Fine Arts, Rue Ravensteinstraat: Brussels, Belgium

IncarNations is an exhibition created by the South African artist Kendell Geers in dialogue with the Congolese collector Sindika Dokolo. A fascinating initiative that reflects the diversity of the African artistic heritage, from an Afrocentric point of view and including the itineraries of slaves, colonialism and independence movements. As the Senegalese philosopher Souleymane Bachir Diagne stresses: "Ethnographic museums are a negation of art because they prevent the objects on display from really looking at us. Because ethnography is constituted, at its colonial origins, as a science of what is radically other, it is in its nature to fabricate strangeness, otherness, separateness". Taken from Sindika Dokolo's impressive collection, the works of African artists enter into dialogue with those of the diaspora while contemporary works will be displayed alongside classical works. Incarnations looks at African art as a living philosophical practice.
