The Self and the Other in primitive art collecting

  • Sabine du Crest
  • Brigitte Derlon
  • Monique Jeudy-Ballini
Friday 13 February 2015

Approaching the concept of connected histories through material culture, the project studies objects that seem to purposefully link Self and Other. The material agency of these kinds of objects is often considered to be particularly strong.

Proudly presenting this fascinating and important project in Leiden, this MAF lecture is structured as follows:

  1. First, project leader Sabine du Crest will present the main aims and concepts of Exogenèses.

  2. Thereafter Brigitte Derlon & Monique Jeudy-Ballini will lecture on The Self and the Other in primitive art collecting, taking up the discussion of their 2008 book La passion de l’art primitif. Enquête sur les collectioneurs.
