Senufo by Till Forster

Book Description

The Senufo people live in C-te d'Ivoire, in Mali and in a lesser measure in Burkina Faso, in the heart of the West-African savannah. This book explores the ways in which this population produced and employed art to structure their life. One perspective is how art highlights the cycle of life among the Senufo, another is how art and the performances in which it is embedded create meaning in their multifaceted world. What sets this book apart from others on African art is that it examines the practice of Senufo artists and performers in relation to the ambiguities of the colonial and postcolonial condition. It addresses how the changing experiences in their society affected the production and appreciation of art.
