Léopold Sédar Senghor / An den Rändern der Macht

Book Presentation

In the monograph Ein Afrikaner in Paris. Léopold Sédar Senghor und die Zukunft der Moderne, Hans Belting and Andrea Buddensieg take Senghor's poetic and political work as the starting point for understanding African art as philosophy and establishing a "civilisation universelle" in post-colonial times. In the catalogue An den Rändern der Macht, Hubertus von Amelunxen contextualises the portraits of nomadic peoples photographed by Winfried Bullinger in East Africa and the concept of "négritude" in the context of regard to hegemonic visual powers.
