Kenya, Tanzania, Zanzibar: The Witchcraft of Art - Imago Mundi
Contemporary Artists from Kenya, Tanzania and Zanzibar
Imago Mundi - Luciano Benetton Collection
Texts by Luciano Benetton, Osei G. Kofi, Sarenco
New languages, colours, magic, experiences, energies are expressed in this collection of works by established and emerging artists from Kenya and Tanzania-Zanzibar. A new creativity, that the West has all too often branded as ethnic and tribal, emerges intense, strong and, at times, impetuous, in the 150 small canvases that comprise this catalogue, testifying to a global, multiform artistic scenario, in continuous movement and renewal, much like great part of the African continent.
Kenya, Tanzania, Zanzibar: The Witchcraft of Art is the first African 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. Each country is represented by the works of established and emerging artists, commissioned with the maximum freedom of expression, whose only constraint is the 10 x 12 cm format.
