African aesthetic

In the history of Africa are involved events of invasion, rape, enslavement, plundering of natural wealth and robbery of artistic heritage. These actions, practiced for centuries, were sustained by the white belief of “superiority” committed to constructing an ideological discourse, supported by a discourse that scientifically attributed the “innate inferiority” of the Black African. The institutionalization of racism favored and guided the creation of ethnographic museums in the colonizing countries, which reproduced and still reproduce theories based on a supposed exoticism, primitivism and inferiority of the peoples that inhabit Africa.
