✏Art of the Baga Book Summary : Art of the Baga: A Drama of Cultural Reinvention traces the art and cultural history of these very special African people from their legendary flight from the mystical highlands of the interior of Guinea to the coast, in their attempt to conserve their own religious ritual, to the eventual destruction of their traditions at mid century with the conversion to Islam and, with independence from France, the establishment of the Republic of Guinea under an iconoclastic Marxist regime. In the book, the Baga voice is heard prominently in the direct testimony of three Baga writers and forty Baga consultants of all ages and background experience, from ten-year-old boys to elders and ritual leaders of over 100 years of age. Artistic creation and reinvention form the core of issues raised throughout the art historical drama.

✏Iconoclasm Book Summary : The word 'iconoclasm' is most often used in relation to sculpture, because it is sculptures that most visibly bear witness to physical damage. But damage can also be invisible, and the actions of iconoclasm can be subtle and varying. Iconoclastic acts include the addition of objects and accessories, as well as their removal, or may be represented in text or imagery that never materially affects the original object. This book brings together a collection of essays each of which fundamentally questions the meaning of the word iconoclasm as a descriptive category. Each contribution examines the impact of iconoclastic acts on different representational forms, and assesses the development and historical implications of these various destructive and transformative behaviours.

✏On the Margins of Religion Book Summary : Focusing on places, objects, bodies, narratives and ritual spaces where religion may be found or inscribed, the authors reveal the role of religion in contesting rights to places, to knowledge and to property, as well as access to resources. Through analyses of specific historical processes in terms of responses to socio-economic and political change, the chapters consider implicitly or explicitly the problematic relation between science (including social sciences and anthropology in particular) and religion, and how this connects to the new religious globalisation of the twenty-first century. Their ethnographies highlight the embodiment of religion and its location in landscapes, built spaces and religious sites which may be contested, physically or ideologically, or encased in memory and often in silence. Taken together, they show the importance of religion as a resource to the believers: a source of solace, spiritual comfort and self-willed submission.

✏Picasso s Collection of African Oceanic Art Book Summary : Picasso's unique non-western art collection, now largely the property of the Picasso family, is presented here for the first time. This book provides a full documentation of Picasso's African, Melanesian, Polynesian, and Indonesian works, as well as an ethnographical description of each object. The interpretation of the collection as a whole, its physiognomy and poetry, sheds new light on the fascination non-western art held for the twentieth century's most important artist. For the first time, all Africa-related activities in Picasso's life, including correspondence with friends, writers, and art dealers, are presented in a coherent timeline. "Picasso and the African Experience: A Chronology," simultaneously a reference for future interpretations on Picasso's oeuvre, documents the deep, personal involvement of the artist with African and Oceanic art and culture.

✏Baga Book Summary : The 18th volume in the successful reference Visions of Africa series, Baga introduces the art and traditions of this small rice-growing community living along the coast of Guinea in West Africa. Their extraordinary sculptures, wooden masks, and statues of various sizes as well as wonderful percussion instruments, chiefs' seats, and other skillfully carved utilitarian objects are presented in superb photographs. The relationships of these works to the culture and traditions of the Baga people--manifestation of divinities, ancestor worship, rites of passage, secret brotherhoods, and weddings, funerals, and harvesting--is brilliantly investigated by the author, who also analyzes the influence of colonization and newly introduced religions on more recent practices.
