Edited by Octavio Zaya. Foreword by Augustin Perez Rubio. Text by Kerstin Schankweiler, Georges Adéagbo, Octavio Zaya.

Beninese artist Georges Adéagbo (born 1942) began his professional life studying law and business in France—until his father’s death in 1971 brought a halt to his degree, requiring him to return to Benin and assume his father’s patriarchal duties. Frustrated, disoriented and faced with the strictures of traditional Beninese life, Adéagbo began to create “constellations” in his garden, combining found objects with his own handwritten notes. After working in solitude for more than 20 years, in the mid-1990s he was invited to present a first show of his work in France, and since then, he has been exhibited in museums and biennials worldwide. Adéagbo’s work is often exhibition-driven: a theme is selected, an extensive research process begins in the artist’s archive, which ultimately yields complex assemblage-installations. For this monograph, Adéago addresses the theme of “The Mission and the Missionaries,” using historical and personal materials such as books, magazines, photographs and textiles.

Introduction by Kasper König. Essays by Homi Bhabba and Viktoria Schmidt-Linsenhoff.

Georges Adéagbo is considered the most outstanding West African artist; at Documenta 11, he showed an installation on explorers and the history of exploration with around 1,500 objects juxtaposing clichés of Africa, and pieces found at the place of showing. This catalogue (with an insert designed by the artist) reads like a voyage of discovery.

Georges Adéagbo: Archaeology Of Motivations - Rewriting HistoryGeorges Adéagbo: Archaeology Of Motivations - Rewriting History

Published by Hatje Cantz Publishers.
Edited by Silvia Eiblmayr. Essay by Okwui Enwezor, Elizabeth Harney, Stephan Kohler and Harald Szeemann.

The history that African artist Georges Adéagbo "rewrites" is plural and nonhierarchical, a history that is constantly shifting and being shifted, in which seemingly valid parameters are being subverted, and from which diverse readings emerge. In installations that juxtapose books, magazines, record sleeves, and photographs from Africa with objects and texts from the country in which he is working, Adeagbo elucidates and reinterprets the processes that have led to the development, replacement, and breakup of territories and political and philosophical systems. This first monograph documents 13 of the artist's installations from the last 10 years, including "The Story of the Lion," which won a prize at the Venice Biennale in 1999, and provides a thorough exploration of an important figure in contemporary African art.
