Benin/Togo: The Revenge of Art - Imago Mundi
Contemporary Artists from Benin and Togo
Imago Mundi - Luciano Benetton Collection
Texts by Luciano Benetton, Enrico Mascelloni, Gislain Bidossessi Fadohan
The artistic exploration of Imago Mundi brings to light the extraordinary creative vitality of two small African countries, Benin and Togo: two long strips of land bordering and perpendicular to the West African coast. Today they are, above all, two independent republics focussed on stability and development, looking to culture and art for a new and positive equilibrium. A collection of 140 works that provides a valuable record of the new, original experiences and artistic suggestions of a region in which an instinctive and essential modernity reflects the contradictory but lively renaissance of an entire continent.
Benin/Togo: The Revenge of Art is an Imago Mundi collection, a cultural, democratic, global, non-profit project, promoted by Luciano Benetton with the aim of creating the widest possible mapping of the different contemporary artistic experiences of our world. In Imago Mundi, each country is represented by the works of established artists and new talents, commissioned with the maximum freedom of expression, whose only constraint is the 10x12cm format.
