Description

A place of extraordinary cultural vitality, the Democratic Republic of the Congo was honored in the exhibition Beauté Congo – 1926-2015 – Congo Kitoko presented at the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain in 2015. Taking as its point of departure the birth of modern painting in the Congo in the 1920s, the catalog traces almost a century of artistic production. While specifically focusing on painting, it also includes sculpture, photography, comics, and music, providing the reader with the unique opportunity to discover the diverse and vibrant art scene of the country. Scholarly texts by specialists, interviews with artists, and a detailed timeline provide a deeper understanding of the artistic and historical contexts in which the works on display were created.
