A propos de cet article

Language: N/A. Brand New Book. The outflow of archaeological or artistic work from Africa, together with the ways of exhibiting African treasures outside Africa, are emerging as serious issues both in political and ethical terms. They are typified by a series of hot disputes concerning the legality of the exhibition of Nok terracotta pieces from Nigeria in the Louvre. Meanwhile in Africa, there has been an upsurge of active efforts by many ethnic groups - in Mali, Zimbabwe, Nigeria, South Africa and elsewhere - to create or re-create their own cultures by reviewing their cultural legacy. The book discusses the question: How should Africa s cultural heritage be preserved? Scholars and museum professionals from Africa, Europe, America and Japan clarify the significance of Cultural Heritage for African people in postcolonial Africa. They also explore how scholars and museum professionals outside Africa can support African colleagues in handing down their cultural legacy to future generations. KENJI YOSHIDA is Professor at the National Museum of Ethnology, Osaka, Japan; JOHN MACK, formerly Keeper of Ethnography at the British Museum, is Professor of World Art at the University of East Anglia. The contributors include: RUMI UMINO, GODFREY MAHACHI, TEREBA TOGOLA, GEORGE S. MUDENDA, JASPER MORGAN CHALCRAFT, NORIKO AIKAWA-FAURE, ANITRA NETTLETON, MOYO OKEDIJI, YUKIYA KAWAGUCHI, TETSUYA KAMEI, MARY nOOTER ROBERTS, SHOICHIRO TAKEZAWA and KIPROP LAGAT South Africa: Unisa Press.

Synopsis :

The outflow of archaeological or artistic work from Africa, together with the ways of exhibiting African treasures outside Africa, are emerging as serious issues both in political and ethical terms. They are typified by a series of hot disputes concerning the legality of the exhibition of Nok terracotta pieces from Nigeria in the Louvre. Meanwhile in Africa, there has been an upsurge of active efforts by many ethnic groups - in Mali, Zimbabwe, Nigeria, South Africa and elsewhere - to create or re-create their own cultures by reviewing their cultural legacy. The book discusses the question: 'How should Africa's cultural heritage be preserved?' Scholars and museum professionals from Africa, Europe, America and Japan clarify the significance of 'Cultural Heritage' for African people in postcolonial Africa. They also explore how scholars and museum professionals outside Africa can support African colleagues in handing down their cultural legacy to future generations. Kenji Yoshida is Professor at the National Museum of Ethnology, Osaka, Japan; John Mack, formerly Keeper of Ethnography at the British Museum, is Professor of World Art at the University of East Anglia.

Review:

(Its) strong chapters make it well worth reading by scholars, students and heritage practitioners alike. AZANIA Demonstrates the remarkably rich, complex, and dynamic diversity of cultural production and debate taking place across the continent and beyond. AFRICAN AFFAIRS Elegantly produced and presented (...) this volume offers some interesting and useful insights into African heritage, and the problems and tensions African nations and communities face in having that heritage recognised and understood. (It) draws attention to a range of important issues (and) is not only a useful introductory source for those interested in African heritage issues, but also offers some insights into international debates about the nature of intangible cultural heritage. JOURNAL OF AFRICAN ARCHAEOLOGY This is a timely publication. (...) It is also accessible to a general reader because academic jargon is kept to a minimum. The editors and contributors are commended for putting together such an important work. AUSTRALASIAN REVIEW OF AFRICAN STUDIES
