  • Colonial Maps and a Cartographic Reckoning in Post-Revolutionary Mexico
           City

    • Authors: Delia A. Cosentino
      Abstract: By the 20th century, 16th-century maps of Mexico City were not new, but their value was renewed by an urban elite grappling with the nation's historical geography. The capital saw fresh developments, including modern architecture and industry, while early excavations offered glimpses of Aztec Tenochtitlan buried beneath. This stratigraphic tension necessitated a reckoning; of concern here is the way that visual and intellectual cultures engaged in a particular cartographic reckoning. Colonial maps filled a void as artists, architects, art historians, and others worked to reconcile Mexico City’s modern identity with its ancient foundations.

  • Disputas imperiales por Latinoamérica: un ensayo comparativo en torno a
           dos proyectos cartográficos de Alfredo Guido y Miguel Covarrubias

    • Authors: Fabiana Serviddio
      Abstract: En este trabajo propongo ensayar una comparación entre dos proyectos artísticos casi contemporáneos realizados en los albores de la Segunda Guerra Mundial, que problematizaron su pertenencia cultural a relatos regionales preestablecidos. En primer lugar, se abordará el análisis de Carretera Panamericana(1942), obra mural del artista argentino Alfredo Guido; en una segunda instancia, se hará referencia al proyecto de los seis mapas pictóricos realizados por Miguel Covarrubias para la Exposición Internacional Golden Gate de San Francisco, en 1939 (deteniéndome en particular, en Formas artísticas del área del Pacífico yPoblaciones del Pacífico). Las cartografías pictóricas de Alfredo Guido y Miguel Covarrubias fueron proyectos murales a gran escala, caracterizados por estilos híbridos, que combinaron libremente desde la reproducción fotográfica más precisa hasta la simbología más sintética, desde la exuberancia cromática hasta la grisalla, para brindar una visión compleja de América, insertando elementos discordantes en los discursos totalizadores que se disputaban el continente. Los mapas rescataron la multiplicidad de herencias culturales que lo componían, volviendo opaco el carácter construido del deseo imperial escondido en aquellas falsas totalidades.

  • Mapping Colonial Interdependencies in Dutch Brazil: European Linen &
           Brasilianen Identity

    • Authors: Carrie Anderson
      Abstract: In Dutch Brazil, the Brasilianen were essential allies to the West India Company. To maintain this critical alliance, the Dutch presented them with gifts of linen, a fabric in high demand. Representations of Brasilianen wearing linen garments were pervasive and include an image on Joan Blaeu’s 1647 map of the Brazilian Captaincies of Rio Grande and Paraíba. Traditional interpretations of these linen-clad Brasilianen prioritize a center/periphery model; in contrast, I argue that these pictured linens document the interdependencies between the WIC and the Brasilianen, a position supported by digital maps plotting Dutch/indigenous exchanges.

  • Mapping Edward Hopper: Jo Hopper as her husband’s Cartographer

    • Authors: Gail Levin
      Abstract: Two hand-drawn pictorial maps of South Truro and Cape Cod, by artist Josephine Hopper link art and cartography. She made them to introduce the Cape Cod she shared with her husband, Edward Hopper, to collectors who bought his painting of a site she mapped, these mid-1930s maps show little regard for accurate scale, and have artistic rather than technical style. They show landmarks, both natural and constructed, from either Edward’s or Jo’s paintings, or both. Her maps imitate aspects of modern topographic maps, recall turn-of-the-century pictorial maps of Paris, project her inner vision of the outer world that she and Edward both depicted.

  • The Manuscript Map of the Dagua River. A Rare Look at a Remote Region in
           the Spanish Colonial Americas

    • Authors: juliet wiersema
      Abstract: The Manuscript Map of the Dagua River Region (1764) is a hand-drawn map produced in the Spanish Viceroyalty of Nueva Granada. While created as visual testimony for a land dispute, I argue that a careful art historical reading of the Dagua River Map, considered in conjunction with eighteenth-century archival documents, nineteenth-century explorers’ accounts, and surviving historical maps, reveals other narratives about ethnicity, industry, and society in a remote region of a peripheral Spanish viceroyalty. The Dagua River map highlights the incontrovertible place that geography held for those—namely enslaved and freed Africans—who came to control trade and transport in the region, buying their freedom and establishing free communities.

  • Cartographic Beasts at the Tail-end of the Long Renaissance: Style and
           Sources for the Tabula geographica regni Chile (1646)

    • Authors: Catherine Burdick
      Abstract: In mid-seventeenth century Europe, as “plain” Enlightenment mapping conventions displaced Renaissance pictorialism, cartographic beasts passed into disuse. In this paper I analyze a final retreat for mapped fauna, Alonso de Ovalle’s Tabula geographica regni Chile (Rome, 1646), as a tail-end of the pictorial style which characterized the cartography of the long Renaissance. Yet we shall see that this map’s outmoded pictorialism was appropriate to its function as an early conveyance of Chile in Spain, and that Ovalle’s South American critters, adapted from exploration documents, evoked the authority of great voyages before Philip IV.

  • MAGIS Brugge: Visualizing Marcus Gerards’ 16th-century Map through its
           21st-century Digitization

    • Authors: Elien Vernackt
      Abstract: Marcus Gerards delivered his town plan of Bruges in 1562 and managed to capture the imagination of viewers ever since. The 21st century digitization project MAGIS Brugge, supported by the Flemish government, has helped to treat this map as a primary source worthy of examination itself, rather than as a decorative illustration for local history. A historical database was built on top of it, with the analytic method called ‘Digital Thematic Deconstruction.’ This enabled scholars to study formally overlooked details, like how it was that Gerards was able to balance the requirements of his patrons against his own needs as an artist and humanist.

  • Indigenous Stylistic & Conceptual Innovation in the Uppsala Map of
           Mexico City (c. 1540)

    • Authors: Jennifer Saracino
      Abstract: The only known map of Mexico City painted with the collaboration of indigenous artists, the Mapa Uppsala (c. 1540) depicts the city and surrounding Valley of Mexico. This essay counters previous characterizations of the map’s formal composition as one that has fully espoused European cartographic modes. This essay contextualizes the Mapa Uppsala within the extant corpus of pre-Hispanic and early colonial cartographies to demonstrate that a closer analysis of pictorial conventions and structures can shed light on how and why the artists might have consciously selected particular pictorial strategies.El único mapa conocido de la ciudad de México pintado con la colaboración de artistas indígenas, el Mapa Uppsala (c. 1540) representa la ciudad y el valle de México que lo rodea. Este ensayo contrarresta las caracterizaciones previas de la composición formal del mapa como una que ha adoptado modos cartográficos europeos. Este ensayo contextualiza el Mapa Uppsala dentro del corpus existente de cartografías indígenas para demostrar que un análisis más detallado de las convenciones y estructuras pictóricas puede arrojar luz sobre cómo y por qué los artistas pueden haber seleccionado conscientemente estrategias pictóricas particulares.

  • Thinking Globally, Mapping Locally: Styles and Discourse in Transatlantic
           Cartography

    • Authors: Delia A. Cosentino
      Abstract: Maps have the special capacity to create and project spatial frameworks through both their physical and stylistic forms. The close study of maps as constructed objects re-centers the principle element of any art historical problem, relational thinking through visual culture. A cartographic representation examined as an element of its historical context can simultaneously articulate a specific perspective on a particular place, and reveal broader dialogues of which that viewpoint is one part. The articles brought together here examine a variety of local mappings contingent on more global thinking in the transatlantic world, from the colonial period to the twentieth century.

  • 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.
