  • Notes from Johannesburg - Dialogues and Itineraries of the South from
           Kinshasa: Art, History, and Education

    • Authors: David Andrew
      Abstract: This text was originally a brief speech in a debate – Dialogues and Itineraries of the South from Kinshasa: Art, History and Education that took place at Mário de Andrade Library’s Auditorium in São Paulo (Brazil) on October 26th 2016. It draws from questions and discussions in Kinshasa, concerning arts education, the challenges in decolonizing curriculum and methods, connecting them to South African experiences, particularly at the Wits School of Arts (Johannesburg) and also from the Another Road Map School research group workshops.

  • Think natural ! Une nécessité qui ne se cache plus

    • Authors: Cedrick Nzolo Ngamobu
      Abstract: This contribution raises questions regarding the search for mediation and transition found in pedagogy and the creative process. This can be posed as a response to an affirmation of identity, coupled with a search for philosophical autonomy. The need for mediation or transition is a necessity that we all seek in different ways and according to our respective contexts. In teaching in a school of art or fashion, it is a question with different variables that leaves the field open to all forms of questioning and brings to the fore the confrontation of modes of expression.

  • Œuvre d’art comme récit historique (Rapport des
           discussions du groupe de travail)

    • Authors: Emi Koide
      Abstract: This report aims to present central questions raised during two days of group discussion and debate concerning the theme « art work as history ». Several different points of view were presented, in which generational frictions in kinois artistic milieu came to the fore. The main subjects during the discussions were: the challenges involved in writing Art History in the Congo through their own perspectives; the importance on creating archives about Congolese art locally; considering artwork as historical narrative; the importance of the body as a link between object and performance, as well as between material and immaterial dimension.

  • Cadrer temps et histoire (Rapport des discussions du groupe de travail)

    • Authors: Matthias De Groof
      Abstract: This group session discussed the notion of “Framing time and history” and investigated the ways in which the current practices of its participants (some of which emerged from the context of the Académie des Beaux-Arts de Kinshasa) are concrete examples of a South-South dialogue and how this can provide a critical perspective on art history and art education. Debates concerning the how and the why of that dialogue through art production, distribution and criticism are presented.

  • Au-delà des rivalités provinciales : poétiques visuelles tropicalistes
           et autres projets d’art étendu depuis la perspective du Nord-Est
           brésilien

    • Authors: Ayrson Heráclito
      Abstract: This text is a compilation of writings published during the course of our research for the 3rd Biennale of Bahia (2014), for which we worked in the curatorial team. These investigations reflect on the genealogy of Northeast Brazil’s contemporary art, seeing this region as unrestricted and non-essentialist. The production of certain artists is considered within an expanded context. To this end, we employed the idea of PEBA (Pernambuco-Bahia), while attempting to come to terms with the possibility of existence of a family, united by the desire for a poetic turn in the tropics.

  • The Lubumbashi Biennial: Towards New Protagonisms

    • Authors: DANIELLA GÉO
      Abstract: This article reflects on the role and relevance of the Lubumbashi Biennial (DR Congo), taking into account its specificities, context and modus operandi, as well as making brief parallels with other recurring art events in an attempt to situate the Congolese biennale within the histories of contemporary art biennales. The text provides first-hand commentary on the Lubumbashi Biennial, in particular its fourth edition in which the author formed part of the curatorial team.

  • Aesthetic Autopsy. Collective Memory and Trauma in Contemporary Art from
           Angola

    • Authors: Nadine Siegert
      Abstract: Angolan history is mainly a history of wars. After the long anti-colonial fight (1961 – 1974) that ended with the independence of the country in 1975, a civil war between the former independence movements started. In the 1980s, Angola was the venue for a proxy war between the Socialist bloc and Western countries, supporting the different protagonists fighting on Angolan territory. After the crumbling of cold war ideologies in 1989, the war continued as a struggle for political hegemony and access to natural resources until 2002, devastating lands, economy and social structures. These historical events might have led to trauma with the utmost probability. Nevertheless, there is no public discourse on the civil war and no reconciliation policy. This might be due to its adjacency, suggesting that traumatising events need several years before being far away enough to be talked about. But still there are some approaches by contemporary artists worth to look at. In this paper I critically explore the perspectives employed by the artists dealing with these topics. My central question is, if art might offer another, maybe even alternative perspective on engagement with the memory of the civil war that goes beyond the normative truth and reconciliation discourse dominant in southern Africa that focuses on forgiveness. Can art be a coherent form to remediate memory or is it actually rather pointing towards the unrepresentability of trauma'

  • Histoire picturale de Laurent-Désiré Kabila (1997-2001)

    • Authors: Donatien DIBWE Dia Mwembu
      Abstract: This article considers the story of the late Laurent-Désiré Kabila, President of the Democratic Republic of Congo, as told by the popular painters of the city of Lubumbashi. Its shows how popular painting contributes to the knowledge of LD Kabila's reign, by serving as a support for oral history. Indeed, the commentaries of the paintings made by their authors or by critics unveil a chapter of history. Placed next to each other according to their theme and chronological order, popular paintings depict the highlights of the history of a given region in a specific area such as politics, economy, culture, etc.

  • Lumumba’s Iconography as Interstice between Art and History

    • Authors: Matthias De Groof
      Abstract: How does Congolese art and artistic representations of Lumumba “mediate past, present and future”' How do they relate to historical narratives and to the dialogues within the Global South' This contribution proposes Lumumba’s iconography as a case in point of the interstice between art and history. It positions the image of Lumumba as mediating between past, present and future for both the Congo and the Global South more broadly.

  • Retour à l’authenticité in the City: A Photo Essay

    • Authors: Ruth Sacks Dr
      Abstract: These photographs were taken as part of a larger research project tracing Mobutu Sese Seko’s construction projects in Kinshasa in the late 1960s and 1970s. The sites were part of a drive initially taking place under Mobutu’s cultural policy of retour à l’authenticité, instigated in 1967 as a means of taking recourse in pre-colonial Congolese traditions. This gave rise to a wide variety of architectural styles, adorned by artworks largely commissioned from a group called the avant-gardists. The selection of photos seen here presents glimpses of some of the sites and their artworks.

  • Le paradigme « Art Africain » : de l’origine à sa
           physionomie actuelle

    • Authors: Henri Kalama
      Abstract: This study relooks at the problematic concept of "African Art". The conceptual evolution of "African Art" coincides with three realities: firstly, that the art discovered in Africa was described as uncivilized; secondly, that this art capitulated with the colonial past of Africa; finally, that this art of an underdeveloped continent. In such a context of emergence, this art has been or is still exploited by ambitious and interested promoters. Hence, there is an imperative need for contemporary artists to overcome all these influences to produce works whose ontological values and universality cannot be challenged.

  • Les nouveaux défis du métier d’artiste en République Démocratique du
           Congo

    • Authors: André Yoka Lye
      Abstract: The history of art institutions in D.R. Congo is relatively old compared to the rest of Africa. This justifies the know-how of Congolese artists since 1930-40’s, even if the general trend was, for a long time, reliant on amateurism and mimetism of European production. With the integration of art institutes into university education level since 1971, the issues and challenges became precise and appeared to be possible to overcome: professionalization, rooted and applied research, community building and international competitiveness, with the urge of solidarity with countries and experiences from the South.

  • “What You See Is What You Get: The Artifice of Insight”: A
           Conversation between R. Luke DuBois and Anne Collins Goodyear

    • Authors: Anne C. Goodyear
      Abstract: The metaphorical relationship between sight and knowledge has long been recognized: the double-entendre of “illumination” promises both light and understanding; “I see” signifies that one “gets it” intellectually. This conversation between R. Luke DuBois and Anne Collins Goodyear addresses how data accrues meaning through pictorial structures that represent it. An artist, DuBois has consistently played with conventions for depicting information visually, revealing the intersections between data and desire they represent. Reexamining the interfaces through which we view the world, DuBois and Goodyear consider what our filters threaten to hide.La relation métaphorique entre la vue et la connaissance a longtemps été reconnue: le double-sens de «l'illumination» promet la lumière et la compréhension. Cette conversation entre R. Luke DuBois et Anne Collins Goodyear traite de la façon dont les données accumulent le sens à travers les structures picturales qui le représentent. L’artiste, DuBois a toujours joué avec les conventions pour représenter l'information visuellement, révélant les intersections entre les données et le désir qu'ils représentent. Reexaminant les interfaces par lesquelles nous regardons le monde, DuBois et Goodyear considèrent ce que nos filtres menacent de cacher.

  • Enriching and Cutting: How to Visualize Networks Thanks to Linked Open
           Data Platforms.

    • Authors: Lea Saint-Raymond et al.
      Abstract: Networks are developing very quickly in the social sciences, and they are beginning to emerge in art history. This paper explores the making of network visualizations, from the building of the dataset to the analysis of results. Starting from an initial corpus regarding the Parisian auction sales for modern paintings, we developed a methodology to enrich it, thanks to linked open data platforms and technologies for realigning datasets. We then call into question the visualization of networks. Although it brings about an overview of the market and allows a very close reading, the best is the enemy of the good: too much information and too many nodes may represent a handicap, hence the need for both cutting networks and combining them with other modes of visualization.

  • The Computer as Filter Machine: A Clustering Approach to Categorize
           Artworks Based on a Social Tagging Network

    • Authors: Stefanie Schneider et al.
      Abstract: Image catalogs containing several million reproductions of artworks still pose a costly or computationally intensive challenge if one tries to categorize them adequately, either in a manual or automatic way. Using crowdsourced annotations assigned by laypersons, this article proposes the application of a clustering algorithm to segment artworks into groups. It is shown that the resulting clusters allow for a consistent reclassification extending the traditional categories (history, genre, portrait, still life, landscape), and thus enable a finely-grained differentiation which can be used to search in and filter image inventories, among other things.

  • Network Analysis and Feminist Artists

    • Authors: Michelle Moravec
      Abstract: This article examines the benefits and drawbacks of using social network analysis to study feminist artists’ networks. Looking at two of the author’s digital humanities projects, it explores the systemic and structural barriers that limit the utility of social network analysis for feminist artists. The first project on the social network of artist Carolee Schneemann analyzed her female circles through a correspondence network. The second project attempted to trace the circulation of feminist art manifestos in American feminist periodicals. Three factors are identified as constraining network analysis in these case studies, the lack of feminist artists’ archives, an insufficient amount of machine-readable material, and the limited availability of metadata pertaining to them. Network analysis therefore is best view as a supplemental to other digital approaches for studying this group.

  • Workshop as Network: A Case Study from Mughal South Asia

    • Authors: Yael Rice
      Abstract: Over the course of Emperor Akbar’s reign (1556–1605), an exceptionally high volume of illustrated manuscripts was produced. The manuscript workshop was staffed accordingly: between the 1580s and early seventeenth century, over one hundred painters found employ at the Mughal court. Thanks to contemporaneous ascriptions found in the margins of the manuscripts’ illustrated pages, the artists’ names and the capacities (designer or colorist) in which they worked are known. This essay uses digital and sociological methods to examine networks of artistic collaborations across select manuscript projects, arguing that the structure of workshop production teams—in which membership frequently fluctuated—facilitated the formation of a synthetic imperial style.

  • Keeping Our Eyes Open: Visualizing Networks and Art History

    • Authors: Stephanie Porras
      Abstract: Network visualizations have the potential to translate messy archival work into clouds of connection, powerful maps of relations that can reveal hidden agents or nodes of production. But network visualizations must also be understood as artifacts of our own visual culture, laden with the biases and limits of both past and present knowledge systems. Rather than seeing networks as uniform webs of connection, social network analysis must productively interrogate how biopolitical, cultural and social power are manifested within these visualizations, reinforcing the biases and lacunae of the archive.
