Summary:
While the importance of the relationship between anthropology and art has long been recognized, the discussion has tended to focus on North America, Europe, and Australia; until now, experiences from other regions have been largely absent from mainstream debate. This book rectifies this by offering a ground-breaking new approach to the subject. Entirely dedicated to perspectives from Asia, Latin America, and Africa, the book advances our understanding of the connections between anthropology and contemporary art on a global scale. Across ten chapters, a range of anthropologists, artists, and curators from countries such as China, Japan, Indonesia, Bhutan, Mexico, Chile, Ecuador, Ethiopia, and Papua New Guinea discuss encounters between anthropology and art from their points of view, presenting readers with new vantage points and perspectives. Arnd Schneider, a leading scholar in the field, draws together the various threads to provide readers with a clear conceptual and theoretical narrative.
