Georges Adéagbo: Archaeology Of Motivations - Rewriting History

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.
