Kongo art and the rethinking of civilisation
E28 Harrie Massey Lecture Theatre |
25 Gordon Street | London | WC1H 6BE | United Kingdom
Barbaro Martinez-Ruiz, University of Capetown
The lecture will focus on agency in Kongo society, exploring a complex state of social development in which legal, political, religious and visual systems motivate responses to and interpretations of Kongo cultural principles in the Atlantic world. Martinez-Ruiz will argue that the myriad forms of communication known as Ndinga i Sinsu seamlessly integrate into a wide range of audio and visual communicative techniques that he terms ‘graphic writing systems’.
Followed by a reception in Gordon House 106, 7.45-8.30 pm.
